"These groups would play to a smaller group of school children n the round. The children might be able to touch instruments, draw a bow across the strings, hat sort of thing. "The overall program in the elementary grades is now based on three year cycles. What we've done is start out with a 3th century estampi for record ind drum --and then this year| we did touring with music with ·arious periods and countries.
