In this video exploration of the brass family, students will learn about the tuba, trombone, French horn, and trumpet. (The bugle, sousaphone, fluegelhorn, piccolo trumpet, valve trombone, and baritone are also mentioned.) Students will be introduced to composer John Philip Sousa; Louis Armstrong, one of the first great jazz musicians; and jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. They'll discover the many venues that depend upon the brass family, including ceremonial music, marches, fanfares, jazz, and classical music. Vocabulary words to watch for include volume, mouthpiece, valves, and mute. Across-the-curriculum activities included in the expanded Teacher's Guide are tied to National Music Standards and designed to extend the video's educational value.

Only available in the US.
