It's time for the family reunion at Symphony Hall and the instruments are starting to arrive! Here comes the Brass family – what a blast, and the String family always gets here early so they can sit in the front! Look who's marching down the street; it's the Percussion family, and at last, the Woodwinds have arrived – the whole reedy bunch and more! Join Maestro Luigi and his trusted baton for a multi-media study of the instruments of the orchestra like never before! Your students will enjoy humorous story-telling, original songs and listening maps of orchestral recordings that feature each family. A DIGITAL STUDENT edition comes with the Teacher Edition, so everything can be projected from your computer! The enclosed CD-ROM features full-color PDFs of the stories, vocal songsheets, and listening maps – all with embedded audio and video recordings so you can listen, watch, sing or dance with a single click! Join John as he shows you the choreography for each song. And there's more – click on a picture of each instrument and hear a short sound clip – great for review and assessment! The Teacher Edition offers easy-to-present lesson plans linked to the National Standards for all the material and piano/vocal song arrangements with printed choreography notes. The Performance/Accompaniment CD features five original songs. This incredible interactive resource is a must for every music library! Available separately: Teacher/Student CD-ROM, Performance/Accompaniment CD, Classroom Kit (Teacher/Student CD-ROM and P/A CD). Suggested for grades 3-6.
