Pre 5 Communities and Grade 3 Materials: Learning about the Symphony Orchestra

In Pre 5 we have been learning about the Symphony Orchestra as an example of Community. And in Grade 3 we have explored the orchestra to find out the different materials instruments are made of.

In an Orchestra each member works hard to fulfill their responsibilities and everybody cooperates to make sure that the music sounds great!!

There is a very important person in the Orchestra: the conductor. The conductor shows the musicians how to play and makes sure that everybody plays well together.

In class Pre 5s have been playing conducting games and taking turns to lead each other in making music.

We have also looked at the different instruments that we can find in a symphony orchestra. Here you can find the videos we have been using in class as well as the worksheets we have used to draw and colour them. (Strings Worksheet) (Woodwind and Brass Worksheet)

I hope you like them.

Each video below is a playlist and it contains a few videos. You can use the arrows to move on to the next one.

  1. Thank you for the videos of the symphonies. I love music! And I love watching these videos of the orchestras. I went to the Nutcracker Ballet and I saw the Qatar symphony with the musicians and the conductor. My sister Leila is learning to play the piano and the flute. And my mom is learning to play the piano with Leila. I would like to learn to play the piano, too, when I am 6 years old.

  2. Hello thank you for the video.I loved every single instrument that you posted. But if I had to choose one I would choose the flute because the flute is amazing, I loved it!


  3. Thank you very much for the videos. I enjoyed all instruments. The one i prefer is the oboe, because it has a very relaxing sound.
