From lullabies to pop hits, music has always been a part of our lives. Even ancient civilizations enjoyed singing and playing instruments. For example, an ancient Greek musician may have played the lyre, a stringed instrument, or the syrinx, which is made of hollow tubes that are bound together. The syrinx is sometimes called a panpipe, because in Greek mythology the god Pan created it. The ancient Greeks enjoyed singing and created choirs for religious ceremonies, special events and entertainment. To learn more about ancient and modern Greek music, visit sbgmusic.com/html/teacher/
