About Me

FOR ALL MUSIC STUDENTS (4th ​Grade General Music, 5th/6th Grade Band & 6th Grade General Music): The following video, Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, focuses on the instruments of the orchestra. Pay particularly close attention to the instruments that can be found in band: flute (bird), oboe (duck), clarinet (cat), French horn (wolf), and bassoon (grandfather). The timpani (hunters), also known as kettle drums, can be found in both band and orchestra. The strings (Peter) are found in the orchestra only. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4ZHPiHzeAE (Peter and the Wolf – Vancouver Symphony Orchestra)
