Meet the Instrument Families

Fourth graders listen to a recording of a string quartet and ask questions about what kinds of instrument they think they are listening to and describe what they think the instruments look like. Then they discuss musical ideas such as timbre, color and how it relates to each instrument. Students also play a game about the string instruments, in jeopardy style.
