The stars of this series are the ‘tools' of music: its instruments. Children attending will get the chance to familiarise themselves with these instruments under the guidance of expert musicians. In this half year we will embark on a journey into the realm of the musical instruments of a classic symphonic orchestra. Children who join the expedition will have the chance to learn about the orchestra and its most important instrument groups.
Woodwind instruments are irreplaceable member...s of the symphonic orchestra. If they are played alongside a choir, they reinforce the harmonies played by the string instruments, while if a solo part is being performed, the woodwind instruments are responsible for the melody alongside the strings. Woodwind instruments constitute the most varied group in the symphonic orchestra. The name is actually somewhat misleading, as some woodwind instruments such as the flute and its little brother, the piccolo, are now made from metal. The various flutes also differ in other ways from the other orchestral woodwind instruments such as the clarinet, oboe and bassoon. The sounds of the latter group are caused by the vibration of one or two thin reeds located in the nozzle, while there are no nozzles in the flute and its relatives (such as the recorder). Instead, you blow onto a sharp edge that causes the instrument to vibrate.
