How to get in familiar with the instruments of the orchestra and recognize their sound

Hello and welcome!

I decided to make this course with the purpose of giving tools: tools to make everyone able to better explore Classical Music on their own, tools to follow better the more focused future courses.

We will discuss four major topics, what every classical music lover should learn and know:

– the timeline of classical music: the periods that make it and their differences culturally and musically and the most important composers;

– music’s triple nature: the three elements music is made of and how they are connected;

– the genres: the most common words you are going to find within the world of classical music, focusing on the different type of pieces most often played;

– the orchestra: we will get familiar with all the instruments found in a large symphonic orchestra, learning to recognize their sound and their characteristics and personality.

Since I am allergic to too much theory, I took some time to add a couple of in-depth music appreciation lectures, to integrate the informative ones.

Join and enjoy!

Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
