Kindergartners learn about instruments at high school
WDC Elementary music teacher Katy Westrom is teaching Kindergartners about instruments in music class. She figured what better way to educate students than to take them on a mini-field trip to the high school to watch the band perform.
The students watched intently as the band performed music that most of the youngsters were familiar with -- it was a piece from the movie, "Frozen."
"How many of you have seen to the movie, 'Frozen'?" asked Ms. Westrom. The majority of the students shot their arms in the air and smiled excitedly. "Well, you're going to hear Mrs. Weniger's band play music from the movie."
Led by Ms. Westrom, the Kindergartners squeezed between the rows of high schoolers as they played, giving them an up-close view of instruments.
