I am a middle school band director. I spent a lot of time reviewing this website
and I think it is outstanding!! I used it as part of a web quest that I made.
It tells you all about the orchestra and the instruments that are involved. It
is extremely interactive and fun to use as well as being a truely educational
site. Even though it was intended for students up through middle school, I
personally think anyone would enjoy it. It tells you about each instrument as
well as giving you a picture of it and even has the sound each instrument makes.
Even though most of the sounds are synthesized, they are very close to the
real thing, so I was pleased with that. It even goes in to talking about the
basics, tempo, rhythm, pitch, etc. and lets you actually here the differences
between them. It also gives you the dates of performances of the San Francisco
Symphony Orchestra. It even lets you play a tune using a keyboard on the
performulator site and then lets you compose on the composerizer site. It also
has a "radio section" that lets you interact by changing the stations and
hearing different music that the orchestra has played, giving you descriptions
of each piece. I do wish it had the saxophone listed as one of the instruments,
but of course that is not a standard instrument in the orchestra.

Technical Remarks:

You need to have Macromediamedia Flash Player 5.0 or higher to view material on
this site. It does give you the site to download and does not take long to
download. It is very user friendly and has a help section if you are having a
problem. It also has a site map as well as a search area, which I think is great
to have on a website.
