Do you know who this is? This is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Many people think he is a genius. But you don't have to be a genius to make beautiful music! All you need is a little bit of imagination and a love for music.

Have you ever used a cup or a frying pan to make music? There are many people who have learned to make beautiful music with just these things!

This group is called Stomp. They perform music all around the world! What kind of instruments do they use?

The musicians in Stomp make sounds by using their feet, hands and bodies. The only instruments they use are pots, pans and other things from around the house! They make music that is great to hear and watch -take a look yourself!

Another group of musicians is called OK Go. They do some amazing things to make music in unusual ways.

Watch and listen to this song by OK Go called Needing/Getting. They do use some real instruments like pianos. But the most important instrument is...their car!

A mix of sounds and silence. It is how we put those together that makes beautiful music. The best thing about musicians like Stomp and OK Go is that their music is not just good to listen to. It's also fun to watch!
