Guide to Instruments

722153 violinsMusic appreciation begins at a young age. Teach children as young as toddlers how to make their own instruments, while also teaching them about instrument families. This Guide to Instruments also provides background information about music theory and science. Information is tailored to particular age groups, to ensure that the activities are appropriate for your classroom. Also, learn about different types of instruments outside of the musical realm, including those used for surveying, measurement, and navigation. Explanations of grading instruments that are used in the classroom can also supplement your teaching and evaluation of your students.
