Music Appreciation

Tip 4: Get to Know the Orchestra

A nice way to learn about the various instruments of the orchestra is to listen to a piece of music called ‘The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra’ by Benjamin Britten. This piece of music was written specifically to highlight each instrument in the orchestra.

It’s a really good way to focus in on the different orchestra sections (strings, woodwind etc) and listen to the effects they can produce.

You don’t have to be ‘young’ to learn something from this piece – it’s great for all ages!
