Music for young people

13 episodes, 1956, Arts and Audiences, Inc.

From WNET:

"The 13 programs introduce young people to the instruments in the string, woodwind, brass, percussion and keyboard sections of an orchestra. Violinist Yehudi Menuhin and conductor Thomas Scherman appear as commentators during several of the programs. Children participate in the programs, learning about music from famed musicians, including members of the Julliard String Quartet, Stradivarius Society and the New York woodwind and Brass Quintets. The programs take up the instruments themselves and the music that is composed for them."
