More than 300 parents and children packed into the George Washington ballroom to learn about music from several different countries.
Members of the Winchester Orchestra reduced the music to core rhythmic elements that the kids could respond to.
Bassist Mark Bergman says young children can respond to the different music because of the rhythms.
"Rhythm really is the universal language and kids respond naturally to rhythm and if you can point out some of the key rhythmic elements in all kinds of music whether it's rock n' roll, classical music, folk music, country music, they [kids] naturally respond to that in a very physical way," explains Bergman.
Kids were able to play the instruments and some asked the difference between the bigger and smaller instruments and why they sound different.
