Instruments of the Orchestra Day 1

We will explore the instruments of the orchestra beginning with the following wind instruments: flute, clarinet, trumpet, and trombone. We will briefly review the string family as well. Students will get a taste of the wind family by playing our recorders.

This video of an orchestra playing a salsa version of the Nutcracker has many wonderful closeups of the orchestra.
