The Instrument Families and Sounds
Music Tech Teacher (aka Ms. Garrett) has created a great site for music teachers. The site has information, lessons, worksheets, and quizzes and games. Most impressive was her Instrument Families page that has an audio clip associated with each of the instruments from the four main instrument families. This great resource allows students to hear the different sounds the instruments create and to discern the differences between similar instruments. Another fun feature is that you can choose sound clips from two different instrument families and you can hear a combination of those instruments.
