School House Symphony visited TNSM (3-6) students

New School Montessori preprimary students greeted School House Symphony musicians with lots of enthusiasm during their performance and explanation of musical-instrument families, including strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion. Musicians introduced their instruments, telling a bit about the vibrating elements that produce sound. Students were instructed to put their hands to their throats while singing a quick verse of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” to feel the vibration of their vocal cords as they produced sound in their own vocal instrument.
