Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin
reviewed by the Coalition for Quality Children's Media
LeVar finds out how orchestra members combine their sounds and work as a
team. The episode incorporates creativity, expression, rhythm, dance and
self-expression in a team effort, and also explores rhyming, melodies
and math, and how they relate.
Adult Comments: Great introduction to music, offers insight into hours
of practice, pressures and hard work. Balanced a variety of musical
information. Stimulates interest in music while informing in an
entertaining manner. Pace appropriate. A delight.
Kid Comments: Great, great, great. Kids discussed strings, brass and
horns. " I want to be a musician, I like the flute and the french
horns." "Stomp was cool." After watching kids got out instruments and
made their own orchestra.
