Shiver Me Timbres

Sept. 26, 2019

Timbre = the way something sounds! We'll play with different timbres, and we'll use body percussion to make our own thunderstorm.

This is the first of three episodes about timbre; this episode is aimed at the kindergarten and first grade level, but is fun for everyone.

Additional information, including lesson plans and suggestions for extending the learning, available at

This episode was recorded in part at Carter Elementary School in Louisville, KY. Thanks to music teacher Lisa Lucey and everyone at Carter for hosting us.
