This set of resources introduces students to the instruments in a symphony orchestra and supports development of skills in aural identification of instrumental timbre. Conductor Richard Gill AO and musicians from the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra introduce woodwind, brass, string and percussion instruments in a video resource. A series of short videos each present one instrument, playing solo and in the orchestral context. Another focuses on the role of the conductor. Downloadable PDF resources include a map of the symphony orchestra, an illustrated booklet for students and Notes for Teachers. The resources are part of a larger collection, The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in your classroom – Insights into the workings of music with Richard Gill AO.
