Young Students

A number of nice web pages have been written for kids. Some by professional Symphonies like the New York Philharmonic and Dallas Symphony, explaining how an orchestra is put together and what each instrument does. Others web sites help you understand how music works, using pictures or games.

If you are interested in playing in an orchestra, these sites might give you ideas on how to start, what instrument to choose, and show you just how much fun you can have!

If you are a teacher of young musicians, perhaps you will find some of these web sites helpful in your instruction.
