is this a joke by any chance...? you seem to have made a thread about a different subject every day for about the last week... i'm suspicious... try adlers orchestration book, it's the one used in a lot of universities i believe!

No it's not. T_T
I have a very huge interest in orchestration and classical music.

This is on par with someone saying, I want to learn theory. There are 600 page texts on functional harmony, there are 600 pages texts on orchestration. Buy a book, take a class, no one here is going to be able to teach you orchestration over an online forum.

No worries.
I'll check it out.

Though does anyone have 'Professional Orchestration Vol.1 Solo Instruments' by Peter Lawrence Alexander? Is it any good? That book sounds interesting.

What are your analysis skills like? How's your ear?


My ear is good I think. I can figure out songs by ear and all. My analysis skills, am not sure. Not that good at it I guess.

Before learning orchestration I recommend you get your analytical skills up to scratch. In the meantime listen to a lot of orchestral and chamber works, learn to identify what instruments are playing.
