• This piece is a Quartet (four players) written for Marimba. The Marimba is a beautiful-sounding instrument in the percussion family. More specifically, the Marimba is a pitched percussion instrument, meaning that it can play higher or lower notes, just like a piano or our voices. 

  • A great Brass Quintet (five players) performing a famous and very difficult Classical piece called "Flight of the Bumblebee!"

  • An episode of the show "How it's Made", depicting a Trumpet being made out of Brass metal, and various other parts.

  • This is another clip from the awesome show called "How It's Made." Notice how the instruments of the four families are built very differently.
