Mister Rogers thought of himself first and foremost as a musician, and he was delighted to share his love of music. In these five episodes he introduces children to some of the many different ways people use music to express feelings. He visits with world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and the Empire Brass Quintet. He explores rhythms with Ella Jenkins and with a fascinating collection of rhythmic instruments from all over the world.
