2nd Grade Instrument Families

Did you know that instruments have families? Research the instruments in ArtsEdge Perfect Pitch. Next, create your own musical scores with Class of 3000 Funk Box using the instrument families that Mr. Horne asks you to make. Can you make a song using only the instruments from the percussion family? Can you create a song with only string instruments  How about a song with brass and woodwind instruments?


Finally, discuss these questions with your table partner:
  1. Can using technology to create a song save time or money? If so, how?
  2. What are some limitations of creating a song with technology when compared to real musicians?
  3. What is the best way to create a new song? With technology? With real musicians? With a combination of both? Explain.
