Theory – Instruments of the Orchestra


Although the instruments of the orchestra are covered in many theory books and on web sites, none seems to me to present enough information (and not too much) for students for Grade 5 theory exams.

Please note, this is not a substitute for a proper study of orchestral instruments: my favourite book is a short one: Orchestral Technique by Gordon Jacob.
