Playing Spoons with Sherri Bensen

Drawing of two rows of spoons

Local musician and teacher Sherri Bensen will share with us her own unique system for teaching one of the greatest, most portable, most affordable and versatile instruments on the planet—one you already have in your own kitchen—THE SPOONS! 

She welcomes families to her 45-minute class, where you will learn her techniques and accompany yourselves while singing a well-known song.

Sherri has several pairs of spoons for you to use; however, to ensure there are enough to go around, please BYOS (bring your own spoons) - the flatter and smoother the handles, the better.  (You may want to leave the silver at home, as the soft metal may dent.)

Sherri Bensen has been a lifelong vocalist & musician.  Her career included 15 years of teaching over 1,000 1st-5th grade students per week in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. Decades of musical exploration led her to her unique spoons technique.
