Museum of Making Music

Since people first learned how to raise their voices in harmony with others, music has been an intricate part of the social fabric that holds humanity together. The Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad celebrates music and the instruments that bring it to life.
The Museum has a permanent display of hundreds of vintage instruments, audio and video clips, and a vibrant interactive area. Organized chronologically, each gallery features the historic milestones, popular music and instruments of the era it represents.
And the best part? You can even try out some of the instruments yourselves! So come make beautiful music with us, at the Museum of Making Music.

The What Music Means to Me Project was begun by Richard Rejino to raise public awareness of the benefits of music in education and in the quality of our lives. One element of Rejino’s project is his book, What Music Means to Me (published by Hal Leonard, 2010).  In it he combines his original photographs with personal testimonials to document the profound impact that music-making has had on individuals from diverse backgrounds at various stages in their lives. Rejino’s vision and work got our attention and became the inspiration for this unique exhibition that will be on display from December 12, 2014 through August 2015.

What Music Means

First, you are invite you to experience the physical exhibition and the impact that music-making has had on others – captured in words and images by Rejino and in video at the Museum of Making Music. The exhibit incorporates original video footage, photography and quotes from people of all ages for whom music has proved essential and life-changing.

A wide variety of music makers are represented in the video including actor/pianist Robert Downey, Jr., musicians who have performed at the Museum, students from Vista-based Joli Ann Leichtag Elementary and members of the Museum’s New Horizons Band.

Beginning on Friday, December 12, 2014, you’re invited you to share your story with the Museum of Making Music in one of three ways to include it in this unique exhibition!
