Guide to the Orchestral Instruments – Introduction
Following on from our successful series, the MyMusicTheory Guide to Music History, our new series is all about orchestral instruments.
We’ll take a look at how each kind of instrument produces sound, how it’s made, what its characteristics are and, of course, what it sounds like! As usual, we’ll add plenty of musical examples to illustrate each point.
We hope this series will be useful and interesting for anyone who is interested in knowing more about musical instruments, and in particular those taking GCSE or A level music, or preparing for music theory exams (where some knowledge of instruments is required from grade five music theory onwards).
Here is a list of all the posts in this series:
