Here is a Tagxedo of what students learned about woodwind instruments and symphonic music.
What is the name of the large instrument in the top picture? What is the name of the small, black instrument in the third picture? Which makes a higher pitch: a smaller or larger instrument? Do you know why?
Before the man played his instrument in the video above, he asked us to listen carefully and think about what color we "heard."
