Fourth- and Fifth-Graders Try Out Instruments

Fourth- and fifth-graders on the Hillsdale Campus tried out a number of instruments at the annual instrument fair in the Donovan Arts Center. With representatives from Buddy Rogers and Baroque Violin Shop and help from instrumental music teacher John Rising and Lotspeich music teacher Robin Wilson, the students took turns playing sanitized instruments, such as the trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet, saxophone, as well as violin, viola, and cello. The instrument fair offers students an opportunity to become acquainted with a number of instruments. Several students select an instrument and continue to play it throughout Middle and Upper School in Seven Hills’ symphonic and contemporary ensembles.
