ECSO has transformed its popular Music in the Schools grant-funded program into Music in the Homes. These videos are a free resource for all to use to ensure that music education stays present in at-home curriculum. Chris Smith is a percussionist for the ECSO and talks about his musical background, tips for practicing, and performs excerpts from pieces to demonstrate some of the various percussion instruments that are used in orchestral playing. He also performs a wonderful rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" on a steel drum! Our gratitude extends to the R.S. Gernon Trust and James P. and Mary E. Shea Perpetual Trust for their funding of the original Music in the Schools program.
