String instruments and a violin

We love learning about the string instruments in an orchestra.
Listen to the music each of the string instruments make.
We are really lucky...Ms. Kelly plays the violin in an orchestra.
She brought it to school today and showed us how to play it.
We looked at the bow made from horse hair and we listened to the sound of the violin being plucked and being bowed.
We noticed that the strings vibrate when they are plucked.
Ms. Kelly showed us what music looks like to read.  It is very different from reading ordinary books.

We especially loved hearing Ms. Kelly play.
