TWO summer Marimba Building Workshops: 

June 25-27, 2022

August 5-7, 2022


These are Saturday-through-Monday, or Friday-through-Sunday events, 8 hours each day. We will build at least one complete marimba, and the person or school that buys the marimba receives one free attendance at the event.

Teacher Tom Bourne has built over 1700 marimbas of all sizes for schools. Learn everything you need to know about building marimbas for your school or local marimba band.

As with our previous classes, we will construct a complete marimba from start to finish. Plus question answering and discussions on all marimba building related topics. PLUS, a peak at The World's Largest Marimba Bar!!

This class is suitable for adults and teens who can use, or are willing to learn to use, a few basic power tools and hand tools. The safe use of power tools is taught in this workshop. 

Class fee: $400. Special pricing for adults attending with a younger learner. Class limited to 7.

Bellingham, Washington is located just south of the Canadian border between Seattle and Vancouver B.C. It is near all kinds of great activities on the water and in the mountains. Escape the summer heat! Bellingham has a modern airport with direct flights to LA, Las Vegas and other cities in the western USA.

I can provide suggestions for procuring lodging in Bellingham, many options available.
