You Can't Play a Symphony Alone is part of TeachersFirst Help! I Lost My Library/Media Specialist series reviewed here and shares book suggestions and activities that teach students about the orchestra's instruments. The article begins with background knowledge sharing information about each of the orchestra's different sections. The shared activities include book suggestions, online resources, and suggested lessons to extend student understanding of the instruments and music of orchestras. A final extension activity suggestion shares a creative proposal for students to reimagine a new musical story following the reading of Peter and the Wolf. Content in this article includes correlations to ISTE and AASL standards.
