San Francisco Symphony Music for Families: Stringing it All Together: The Elements of Music-Making

Do you ever wonder how a piece of music was created? How does a composer string together so many different notes and instruments to create something that sounds amazing? The final piece might sound complicated, but the building blocks of music are very basic: pitch, rhythm, melody, harmony, and dynamics. Join the San Francisco Symphony and conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser as they take apart great works of music and put them back together.
