Fun Fact Friday: The Stories of Musical Instruments

Or that the accordion is the national instrument of Finland? The percussion triangle used to have as many as eight angles? The celesta looks like a piano but is actually a percussion instrument that is relatively new to history? There is a pocket trumpet that is wound tightly so it is only 8 inches in length?

The Stories of Musical Instruments has these fun facts and more! Understanding music and instruments and the history behind them is a great way to help our students develop a broader music understanding. Whether you use this book during spare lesson time, include it in your studio lending library, or encourage your students to add it to their summer reading stack, there are fun facts and interesting history galore in this uniquely designed book! There is something for everyone here 🙂
