Synopsis: From the cello to the clarinet to the trumpet to the drums, Those Amazing Musical Instruments! takes readers on a musical tour, with notes on the history, construction and sounds of the instruments from each of the major instrument "families." They can see the parts of the violin working together, read about the flute in Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro," or hear the different sounds of the tuba on the included CD-ROM. This interactive CD-ROM includes individual musical samples giving readers an audible taste of each instrument, as well as full orchestra pieces showing how they play together.

Those Amazing Musical Instruments! features noted conductor Marin Alsop as kids' guide to the instruments, offering helpful comments and tips throughout the book.

From the Back Cover: From the cello to the clarinet to the tuba to the timpani, conductor Marin Alsop takes you on an exciting musical tour!
The great physicist Albert Einstein played and taught the violin.
Harp strings have different colors depending on their note.
The first flutes were made of bones!
A silver trumpet was found in Tutankhamnn's tomb in Egypt in 1922: it had been lying there undiscovered for 3,000 years.
The sound produced on the clarinet is actually affected by the shape and size of the player's mouth.
Did you know?
Every single bassoon is a bit different. If something goes wrong with a bassoon, a player can?t simply pick up another one and expect to sound the same.
Marin Alsop is your guide to Those Amazing Musical Instruments! She's a conductor who has led orchestras in Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Paris and Tokyo! Watch for Marin's tips and comments all through the book.
The CD-ROM lets you hear the sound of each instrument alone, or playing with an orchestra. More than 100 musical samples in all! Plus loads of bonus history and fun musical information
