We went to The Museum of Making Music in San Diego for one of our field trips.
First, we learned how the electric guitar worked and played. One of the pieces inside gets copper wire wrapped around it 5,000 times.
Next, we learned about African drums. To make better sounds, the whole at the bottom has to be uncovered. I got to conduct one of the rounds.
Next, we learned about bands from the early 1900’s. Most bands had woodwind and brass. Also, there was a self-playing piano. It read dots on a paper to play. Additionally, there was a room where we could play lots of different instruments.
We watched videos of bands play and learned about jazz. After that, we went into the shop to look at instruments and toys. The museum was very fun and, I want to go there again!
