Instruments of the Orchestra

Welcome to the most in-depth set of Instrument Guides publicly available, featuring members of the Philharmonia Orchestra in London. Pick the instrument from the playlist that you are most interested in, and start watching!

Ready to start playing on your own? There are lots of great places that will rent you an instrument (you can even have it shipped to you), and you can hire a private teacher online to do lessons through Skype or Zoom. This is a great way for kids to get great quality lessons from top teachers that wouldn’t ordinarily have access to!

It’s easy to start with simple instruments when kids are young, like the recorder or a pair of drum sticks. As your child progresses, have your student-grade instrument case out and open, so your child will feel welcome to pick it up and start playing, without a lot of fuss or hassle.
