Today the Tucson Symphony Brass Quintet and Percussion performed at Lulu Walker School. There was a French horn, a tuba, two trumpets and a trombone. There was also a percussionist with a kettle drum, a snare drum, a wood block, a triangle and a bass drum.

The theme for today was " Music is what emotion sounds like". One thing they talked about was rhythm. Rhythm is tempo - how fast or slow a piece is played. Also, they mentioned dynamics - how loud or soft they played. The trombone player talked about major and minor scales. A major scale is upbeat and happy but a minor scale sounds sad and slow. They called us the best school in the city.
