A lesson in String Instruments
Class: Music Year: 2018 - 2019
On Friday afternoon prep 6 and 7 were learning all about different string instruments. We talked about the string instruments in an orchestra and how strings vibrate to make a sound. They also learned how the pitch is altered when the length of string is changed.
The musicians in school very kindly brought in their instruments and demonstrated how to play them. The girls were given an opportunity to try violin, cello, guitar and ukelele and experienced bowing, plucking and strumming techniques.
