KidsNotes is a one-hour program that begins with the reading of a book such as, Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin or The Remarkable Farkle McBride, which introduces the different families of instruments in an engaging and fun way. Next, depending on the age of the participants, students engage in games that explore musical concepts like pitch, rhythm, and timbre. Then one of GSO’s professional musicians introduces and plays their instrument, choosing music suitable for a young audience. To finish up, they will feature an Instrument Petting Zoo, which allows children to try out an instrument from each of the four orchestra families to learn more about their favorites.
