Here are common examples of the different band and orchestra instruments your child can learn at school and with private lessons.

Woodwind Instruments for Band & Orchestra

Woodwind instruments got their name from the wood material they used to be made of and for the way you play them by blowing air through a mouthpiece. Today, woodwind instruments can be made of wood, metal, plastic, or a combination of these materials. Woodwind instruments are typically in a cylinder or pipe shape with holes with a mouthpiece at the top and a hole at the bottom.

Common woodwind instruments in band and orchestra include: Clarinet, Flute, Oboe and Bassoon.

Brass Instruments for Band & Orchestra

Brass instruments got their name from the material they were and continue to be made of: brass. These instruments have a mouthpiece with long pipes that end in a bell-shaped opening. Brass instruments have curved and twisted pipes with valves that look like buttons that open and close different parts of the instrument.

Common brass instruments in band and orchestra include: Trumpet, French horn, Trombone and Tuba.

String Instruments for Band & Orchestra

String instruments got their name from the strings that run across the body of the instrument and help create the sound. While many string instruments are made of wood, the sound comes from the strings that are played by fingers or a bow. String instruments range from small, handheld instruments to those that rest against the ground and upper body.

Common string instruments for band and orchestra include: Violin, Viola, Cello and Bass.

Percussion Instruments for Band & Orchestra

Percussion instruments refer to a wide range of instruments that make a sound from being hit, shaken, or scraped.

Other percussion instruments create special sounds and add excitement to a musical piece.

Common percussion instruments for band and orchestra include: Drums and Piano.

FAQs

What styles of band and orchestra instruments can I learn?

Lessons in Your Home offers private lessons for a wide variety of band and orchestra instruments, including woodwind, brass, strings, and percussion instruments.

Do I need to have an instrument to start lessons?

You don’t need to own your own instrument in order to start lessons, but you will need to secure one somehow. Many bands and orchestras will offer loaner instruments to children, and you can also look into renting one from a locally-owned store in your area. If you aren’t sure where to look for an instrument, you can talk to your teacher to get some resources and ideas on where to rent, buy, or borrow one from.

How old do you have to be to start taking band and orchestra lessons?

Lessons In Your Home teaches children as young as five years old. We offer orchestra and band music lessons for students who currently play in or want to join their school or community ensemble.

How much time should be spent practicing band and orchestra instruments?

Practice and repetition are the keys to success when it comes to learning band and orchestra instruments. If your child is already in their school or community’s band or orchestra, then they likely get to practice regularly with a group. It is generally recommended that you practice each day to get the most out of learning a new instrument.
