Abstract:  Ancient Greeks considered music a necessary element to every human artistic and intellectual activity as well as of everyday life. They believed that it forms man’s character and thus it is an ideal medium to help bringing up the young. Music was taught at school, or at home, it accompanied the games and it was present everywhere. The Kit contains copies of the original instruments: strings (a lyre ),wind (double auloi with reeds, a salpinx or trompet, a horn and Pan’s syrinx), percussion (a tympanon, two sets of crotals and a set of cymbals). With the help of slides, books and taped music, the pupils can study the instruments and locate them illustrated on ancient vases and sculptures.
