The Story of the Orchestra is a well rounded introduction to musical instruments and to composers The composers are in part one and are arranged chronologically by musical era -- Baroque Classical Romantic and Modern Part two about instruments is divided by sections -- string woodwind brass percussion and keyboard An oversized book with lots of illustrations and photographs it's the kind of book that makes a great living book spine for a classical music unit study and will continue to serve as a handy reference through all your years of composer study We reference it often as we listen to our composer of the term (in a Charlotte Mason styled composer study) The companion CD is a nice plus There will be a note on a page telling you which track is relevant For example when we studied Tchaikovsky I pulled out this book and looked for his name in the index I found not only a whole page about him with some quite interesting facts but also a reference to him on the Celesta page On the CD is a track of his "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy " featuring that instrumentIn my opinion this book is appropriate for children aged K-6
