junk4funk was founded by Victor Scott in 2007, and is recognised throughout the UK as a fun way of getting the recycling message across.
Victor Scott’s junk4funk encourages children to make Pitch Pipes from straws, Cardboard Guitars from cornflake boxes, and “Samba Shakers” from plastic bottles! Music made entirely from rubbish! junk4funk was recently awarded a small research and development grant by the Arts Council.
“I facilitate Junk / Recycled Music workshops where participants firstly make Musical Instruments from waste sources and then play exciting music on them, using rhythms derived from the Key Stage curriculum”.
“I have been a Professional Musician / Music Tutor for the past 30 years – including 10 years as Arts Support Tutor for Nottinghamshire County Council Music Service.”
“Well organised, planned, developmental workshops, encompassing a wide range of influences” - Trevor Iles – Senior Tutor 11th Session Music Workshops
“Thanks for bringing all of the extra instruments with you - we all appreciated it. I have heard only good things about you and your workshops. Will pass your details onto the people organising the environment award so they can pass them onto schools taking part next year” - Denise Keefe. Teacher, Hamworthy Primary School, Poole

Thanks again, Donna."

For example, the cereal-box or the pizza-box could become a “Green Guitar”, or the empty pop bottle could become a “Samba Shaker”. junk4funk offers the benefits which accrue from a Fun, Exciting and Educative environmental activity offering Music Workshops with an ethos of Sustainability where Music is made from Recycled / Waste / Found items.
