Musical Instrument Demonstration by JAARS

On Monday October 1, 2012, JAARS came to Weddington Elementary to help the 2nd grade kick off their sound unit.

Sue Schmidt, a representative of JAARS, brought many musical instruments from countries all over the world with her. She also shared the songs, sounds and stories of each instrument.

Students watched a video presentation demonstrating the instruments as each was being played. They learned about pitch, vibrations, and frequency of all the instruments. Before the demonstration ended each student had the opportunity to play each of the instruments.

WDES thanks JAARS for bringing a great learning experience to our the 2nd graders.
