Meet the Woodwind Family
Flute, Oboe and Bassoon voices are famously colorful and create a lively mix of sounds, songs and sights for the enrichment of very young students. Melodies, rhythms, movement and demonstrations are combined in this 30-minute program that introduces PreK – 3rd graders to the woodwind family of instruments. Experienced performers and educators, North Winds musicians guide students through an exploration of range, tempo, pattern recognition, storyline, and other key ingredients that go into performing live music by composers of every sort. Three more instruments are added to surprise and delight: Piccolo, English horn and Accordion.
