The Stories of Musical Instruments

We rated this book:


Do you like music? Are you a musician? Then you will find this book very interesting. I am a musician and play three different instruments. I liked this book because it tells about the different families of musical instruments like wind, string, percussion, and brass. I also learned about a new type of family of instruments, polyphonic instruments. This book was very informative about the origin of the instruments, the different types or variations of the same instrument. This book even has famous composers or famous musicians in each unit. I find it interesting that the history of the trumpet dates back to pre-historic times. How did cave people think to use hollowed-out bones to make music? Musical instruments and music changed since pre-historic times, thru ancient Greece, the Middle Ages, until now each with its own spin on music and instruments. Throughout time the trumpet looked different, but in the end, they all were a hollow long tube that you blew through to make sounds. As musical instruments changed and progressed so did the different types of music. One example is Dixieland Jazz would not have been the same without brass instruments like the trombone, saxophone, or trumpet. I like this book it has colorful illustrations and informative pictures
