Power to Create Makes
Music Education Fun!
Northwest producer of Award Winning Children's Videos Releases New
Edutainment Series: "Instrumental Classmates"
Seattle, Washington - In a time when funding for music education is
being cut in schools all across the country, many kids these days
don't have the chance to discover music what they hear on the radio
or catch on MTV. But through a great new educational video series
called Instrumental Classmates, from Seattle-based Power to Create,
kids and teens have an opportunity to get excited about all kinds
of music - and to even be inspired to take up an instrument themselves!
Released through Warner Bros. Publications, Instrumental Classmates
is a fun introduction to the families of instruments that make up
not only symphonies and classical quartets, but also jazz, rock and
even marching bands. Kids can identify with the video's "hip"
teen host, who introduces each instrument group in his own goofy and
lovable way. From percussion to woodwinds, to brass and strings, these
videos take us from the stage, to the street, to the studio - and
even the football field, to experience musicians off all kinds as
they practice and perform.

in the video market," comments Power to Create founder, Ken Urman.

What resources are out there? We found that there wasn't a product
series available that introduced kids to all the various instruments
in a motivational way. We created Instrumental Classmates to do just
The Telly award-winning Meet the Instruments video is the first in
the Instrumental Classmates series, which also includes videos that
examine specific instrument groups. The series will be available through
Warner Bros. Publications (1-800-628-1528).
