This site offers an introduction to symphonic music, the orchestra and its instruments in a child-friendly way. Listen to famous composer music clips, learn about the music families and the instruments included in each one. There are separate sections for students and teachers. Find lesson plans (searchable by grade and topic) in the Teachers Lounge section of the site. This site requires Flash, Windows Media Player and Acrobat Reader. Get them from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

In the Classroom

What a fabulous website to share the various instruments (and sounds) with students in your music class. Use an interactive whiteboard or projector, and turn up the volume! Click on the search/explore link at the bottom of the page to view a list of popular links in the site. Share the site on your teacher web page so students can visit again for a music "fix" with their families, especially since music classes are often so far apart.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

I think your website is wonderful. I teach Music Appreciation for middle school, and I have always had a difficult time finding things for my classes to do to keep them occupied. I plan on incorporating your website into my lessons. Thank you. Ray Rust Music Teacher Raymond, CA, Grades: 7 - 8
