Lorinda Jones is a nationally recognized folk music performer, recording artist, and music therapist, residing in Rineyville, Kentucky. Based on her 13 years of teaching music in the classroom, and her lifelong interest in folk music, Lorinda has produced an educational video that is the most comprehensive of its kind. The video not only allows the listener to hear the sound of each instrument, but also provides historical information, plus a visual and aural presentation showing the parts of the instruments:

After viewing the video, students remarked how they enjoyed hearing the variety of instruments, how the conversation dialogue kept their attention for 30 minutes, and how much they learned about the roots of American music, including mountain and Bluegrass music.

The video and CD-Rom can be used as a total unit package, or as a preceding or follow-up activity in coordination with a performance visit.
Video Cost: $15.95
Teacher's Edition CD, with purchase of video: $9.95
