The 7th grade went to visit the instruments gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art yesterday. The four galleries explore instruments from around the world and throughout history. Students used audio guides and packets which directed them to different instruments and helped them make interesting connections to the material that they covered in their general music studies. Students have studied about music across the globe and especially how music from a specific region is heavily influenced by other aspects of its culture and geography.
