Virtual Instrument Demonstrations
In lieu of The Shepherd School of Music's annual Family Concert, sponsored by The Shepherd Society, Shepherd School students have prepared short video demonstrations of their instruments under the guidance of Rachel Buchman, head of the Young Children’s Division of the Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program.
From the deep sound of a tuba to the tiny piccolo, each member uniquely contributes to the whole - just like in a family. Watch videos of your favorite instruments from home and explore the characteristics, elements and quintessence of each instrument.
- Some of the videos below include excerpts from major classical works.
