Hello again Kindergarteners, 1st graders and 2nd graders. I hope you are all doing well! I miss you all!
Below you will find a little review on the Woodwind section of the orchestra and some information on our next section…the BRASS section. The Brass section is the loudest of all sections in the orchestra. Please read through the information or have a grown up read along with you. You can then follow the links to listen to the instruments. If you have time this week, EMAIL me the names of as many woodwind and brass instruments you can remember after watching the videos! Thanks everyone!
