Winsor Music has a program to present concerts for youngsters in the Boston schools, mostly for kindergartners and first graders. We engage them by performing songs that they know. The children cannot help but sing along, and we demonstrate how music can express different ideas and emotions, activities, animals or landscapes. We introduce them to basic rhythm, and to different types of instruments, from traditional (violin, oboe, cello) to innovative instruments that they do not know, such as the theremin. In programs where the children are learning instruments, we invite them to perform for us.
