Jaiya's Information Report - " Orchestra"
An orchestra is made of many different instruments the make a variety of sounds. Each instrument is in a family of instruments that have the same characteristics.
One of the orchestra families is the string instruments. The string instruments are played by musicians. string instruments make beautiful sounds by plucking or rubbing with a bow. My favourite instrument is a harp.
Another family of instruments is the percussion section. Instruments from this family are played by shaking or hitting the them.
The brass section is made of shiny metal.
The woodwind family of instruments originally were made from wood. You play a flute by blowing into the mouth piece.
When these musical families are played together in groups they sound incredible.
