It's Going Down, I'm Yelling Timbre!

Oct. 10, 2019

Our special music word is "timbre" which means the way something sounds. We'll be using different timbres to tell a story from our imagination -- we'll supply the timbres, you supply the story!

This is the final of three episodes about timbre; this episode is aimed at the 4th and 5th grade levels, but everybody enjoys a good story.

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.
