Which Instrument Was That?

As you listen to music in your daily life, make a game out of trying to identify the instruments you hear. Was that a trumpet? A violin? A mandolin? As you identify different instruments, talk to your child about what types of instruments are being represented. For example, is it a string instrument, a woodwind, bass, or percussion?
