Students are currently learning about musical

timbre. Timbre describes the quality of a note,
which is also referred to as tone color. What
better way for students to learn about different
timbres than hearing the sound each instrument
can produce in the orchestra. Students will
observe and describe the instruments sounds
that remind them of a specific animal. This
activity will help them learn how to listen better
in the band and to know what other
instruments are playing with them. This will
help them learn to adjust and play together.

Composer: Camille Saint-Sans
