You’re invited on a musical journey through the Museum of Making Music! Designed for grades 1-5, the MoMM Virtual Field Trip program includes a tour of the Museum galleries as well as three separate STEAM units. Customize your experience by picking the units that work best for your classroom. We recommend pairing the Virtual Gallery Tour with one to two of the STEAM Units.
Join our guide Jacinta on a tour of the newly renovated Museum of Making Music galleries. Students learn about a variety of musical instruments, visit music stores from long ago, and watch live performance clips. Students will use their reasoning skills to discover how and why instruments and music making have changed over time.
Join professional musician Tiffany Christopher on a whirlwind adventure through the language of music. Students explore tempo, pitch and harmony and apply basic math skills to understand notes, note values and scales. Tiffany’s song (and dance!) will leave your students motivated to find their own creative voice.
San Diego musician David Castañeda shares the science of sound through the lens of music. Using musical instruments, students learn about basic science concepts such as vibration, sound waves, and pitch. Students will leave excited about how science and math help create the music they enjoy.
Did you know that there are hundreds of careers in the music industry in addition to being a musician? In this unit, students learn how they can find their place in the world of music. Join professional musician Michael Kennedy and friends John, Jamie, Robin and Kimberly as they share career opportunities related to instrument making, selling, teaching, playing and more!
