  • Instrument and Musician Introduction

    What is a string quartet? The musicians lead the audience through quick demonstrations of their instruments one by one. Note that the musicians share personal information about how they started their instruments—this often comes as a question at the end of a performance, regardless of audience age, when it is not shared during a performance. They also demonstrated how each instrument sounds alone, and spoke a bit about each of their roles in the string quartet. The "How low can we go" group scale exercise is often good to demonstrate the different timbres and ranges of each instrument when heard in succession after they have been introduced alone.
