Big Sister and Little Brother learned to play songs on the harmonica in the second year of kindergarten. The beige thing is the harmonica's plastic case. I had to make cloth cases for their harmonicas. Little Brother had a Thomas the Engine quilted case. Big Sister had a pink wool felt case for hers. Not shown are the soft cotton cloths they had to have to polish the harmonicas. The children performed a song at a concert for parents.
Click on the labels below to see the instruments students played in elementary school music class. Every year they had a big concert. Each child learned to play different instruments, too, like the xylophone, accordion, piano, etc. Students chose what they wanted to play at the concert. In Big Sister's junior high, the students sang in their music class. They didn't play instruments.
