Welcome to the Vital Grant blog of Tim Clarke and Brad Ford, Upper School teachers at the William Penn Charter School in Philadelphia, PA.

Throughout the blog we are attempting to construct instruments using traditional and untraditional methods in order to attempt to create characteristic tones.  Using laser printer, 3d printers, and other methods we are working to create an instrument in each family; woodwind, brass, percussion and strings.

Please check the blog throughout for our progress.
