We had a special visitor this week who brought his family with him: his Woodwind Family!
Tim Owen is a saxophone player in the Army Band and he came and showed us lots of different instruments. We learned about the flute, clarinet, and four different saxophones. Even though the higher ones sounded like babies crying and the low ones sounded like a grumpy grandpa, he showed us how the same instruments can make all kinds of music!
Everyone got to press the different keys and hear how they made different sounds and he even played Happy Birthday in a jazzy style. This week we will focus on tempo and conducting so get ready for more fun!
