Watch Janey Choi and her family teach you how to build and learn rhythmic building blocks. Then follow the links below to practice them.
Practice the rhythms with the links below. I recommend first saying the rhythm names (Ta, Ti Ti, Sh, Tum) as you play your percussion instruments. After you get the hang of it, you can say them in your head, or just play them. Here is a resource for you to use: https://drive.google.com/file/d/134Ga6P9vYKt3cdcMRnUbATTUAZpI-YWm/

Elizabeth Mann demonstrates the flute, including excerpts from Claude Debussy’s “Syrinx“ and the bird from Sergei Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf”. “Syrinx” is a famous piece for solo flute about Pan, the Greek god who made pan pipes out of reeds calling to his love Syrinx, who happens to be hiding in the reeds. The second video is an excerpt from an arrangement of Briccaldi's "The Carnival of Venice," featuring a special guest.

Elizabeth Mann plays a short piece (plus an unexpected guest)Stamford Symphony principal flutist Elizabeth Mann plays the theme from Carnival of Venice (arr. Genin).
I was listening to this great tune in my kitchen and I noticed there was a great part for the salt shaker. It was only a matter of time before the girls and I orchestrated our own family jam along with homemade instruments!
I found “Stand By Me” to be a great song to play along with because it’s got a steady groove throughout, but also some standout parts (yeah, violin solos!) The lyrics can also remind us that even though we are physically apart, music can bring us together in our community as we stand by each other in spirit.
Our instrumentation included:
• A tissue box with rubber bands
• A salt container
• A glass mason jar and baby spoon
• Paper towel tubes as violins with a chopstick/ paintbrush as a bow
