The kantele construction was finished prior to the end of my summer break, about one week before I returned to school to teach for Fall 2015 semester. I started this blog on August 12, and finished the kantele construction posts on August 24th. Creating the instrument and this blog were part of a professional development project. There are several remaining components of the project. I composed a song that will use the kantele as the main melody instrument. I am currently developing the parts for other accompanying instruments and will record the song using multi-track digital recording software.
