This lesson should take 45 minutes.
The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra by Benjamin Britten provides a fantastic introduction to the instruments your students will encounter in our live streaming sessions or as a general introduction to OpusYou. We recommend you complete all of the activities below in advance, drawing particular attention to the instruments we will feature in our sessions. Alternatively, before each live session you could focus on the instruments your students are about to hear by playing the relevant sections of the music as detailed below. Please note that the performance is recorded in two parts.
