Did you ever toot a brass horn, then pick up a violin and stoke the bow across its strings? Did you ever create musical sounds with a flute then beat a cadence on a drum?

The students at Austwell-Tivoli Elementary did just that and more. On Feb. 4, the Victoria Symphony allowed education coordinator Debbie Durham to bring instruments in all the musical family for students to experience first hand the wonderful world of music.

The kids had a great time actually handling all four members of the musical family. The members of the musical family are the strings like a violin, woodwinds like a clarinet, brass like a cornet, and percussion like a drum or even a piano or harp.

The kids came away with a better awareness of how a symphony works, according to Steven Maldonado, principal.

“We hope to send of few of our students to a live symphony concert in April,” said Kathy Gyllenband, sixth grade teacher and administrative intern.
