National Music Week is celebrating 100 years of supporting performers, composers, music education and appreciation of the arts.
As mentioned with our theme, we are encouraging exploring many kinds of music. Perhaps this is the time to find out more about the music of other countries. What instruments are being used there. A good source for researching different instruments is: the Musical Instrument Museum at https://mim.org. There is a virtual tour. Other sources: You Tube, endless possibilities, search by artist, genre, instrument, country; APPLE Music, SiriusXm has many choices.
