Mrs. Fonville's Class Makes Oboe Reeds-Sort Of!

The third grade music classes have been learning about the instrument families of the orchestra.  As part of learning about the woodwinds, the students made an "oboe reed" from a plastic drinking straw. Cutting the end of a straw into a point allows the tip to vibrate against itself in the same way a double reed works for an oboe, English horn, and bassoon. Watch this short video to hear the results!  Watch out Duck Dynasty!
