Benjamin Britten's celebrated and much-loved Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra began life in 1946 as a British Government commission for music to accompany an educational film aimed at introducing the young to the instruments of the orchestra. Britten's eventual theme and variations form features a showcase for every instrument or instrumental group based upon a popular theme adapted from Henry Purcell, along with explanatory narration.

In this classroom pack, Wesley Ball presents a selection of strategies for children to explore Britten's musical guide using worksheets, listening maps and more. The activities are intended to engage children in the active understanding of the orchestra and its growth from the Baroque period onwards. The lessons are all supported by an accompanying CD recording of the full work.

This edition is complete with a full Instrumental Poster Pack comprising 24 posters and fun facts to decorate the classroom and further aid the teaching of orchestral instrumental information.

Rating Review
Customer Rating A good resource with a balance of theory and practical engagement. I used this for teaching the dreaded 'Instruments of the Orchestra' unit at my school and all students of varying abilities found the listening maps and questions accessible.
The percussion section is rather vague and I would recommend that you have instruments available in your score to demonstrate, as i found the posters limiting.
