Instrument of the Week 5

This was another relatively long instrument of the week video but it worked well.  It introduces the guitar as well.  It’s a great example of tempo as the music is slow, fast, gets faster and gets slower at times.  It also has some double bass harmonics which was an opportunity to say that the double bass was going to pretend to be a violin.  The children loved that bit and was amazed that such a low instrument could also make a high sound.  We then talked briefly about the instruments in the string family.  You will need about 7 minutes at the beginning of the lesson if you wish to use this.
