The Instruments of the Orchestra and their Sounding Ranges - Made with MuseScore

• Jul 23, 2010 - 06:54…

If there's any errors in range, I'd like to know about it.

This was made entirely with Musescore, using a few "hacks":

  • To get whole notes, I used 8/1 as the nominal duration throughout, and changing the actual duration per measure.
  • Hid the time signature at the beginning so it wouldn't be "music"
  • Used rehearsal marks as labels for groups of instruments (strings, brass, etc.)
  • Used lyrics to label individual instruments.
  • Hid some rests and notes used for the sake of the lyrics (you can't really sing anything during a rest!)
  • Made the paper extra long to accommodate all instruments on one page.
