    While every culture in the world may not have a word that means “music”, people of every culture have had musical ways to express themselves.  This class is designed to introduce you to some of those instruments, collected by the instructor.  At this session, you will learn what many of these instruments sound like, where they are from, and how they are played.  Some of them are actually easy to play and you will learn a simple method you can use to learn how to play a new instrument.
