Enjoy a presentation about how sound works!
In a Notes in Class presentation, students are introduced to all of the instruments in the orchestra through a live demonstration by a Symphony-trained presenter, a video demonstration of a Youth Symphony student, and a hands-on chance to try each instrument.
During the presentation, a professional music presenter teaches students how sound works and the various ways sounds can be created by each instrument family of the orchestra:
- Strings (vibration of the strings)
- Winds (vibration of the reed and body of the instrument)
- Brass (vibration of the lips)
- Percussion (vibration of different materials)
The SLO Symphony Music Van delivers our acclaimed Notes in Class program to 3rd and 4th grade classrooms throughout San Luis Obispo County.
Then the hands-on fun really begins when the students get a chance to try ALL of the instruments from the presentation! Trumpets, trombones, and cellos, oh my!
