In the first two lessons we will provide a general overview of the instruments of the orchestra. We will start with the string and woodwind instruments in Lesson 1.
In Lesson 2, we will provide a brief overview of the Brass Instruments and Instruments of Little Sustaining Power. These include the harp, pizzicato strings, piano and percussion instruments. Remember this is only a brief overview of the instruments and there are many resources available if you want to learn more about the various instruments. After this overview we will advance to the next chapter dealing with melody and explore interactive scores highlighting Rimsky-Korsakov’s melodies.
