The teaching premise of Professional Orchestration Volume 1: Solo Instruments and Instrumentation Notes is just plain common sense - learn how each major orchestral instrument sounds and how to write for it.

Now we go to the next step to help teach you orchestration on the run.

George Olvik, President of, has put together for all students of Professional Orchestration and the Professional Mentor PDF Workbook for Volume 1, an amazing concert library of another 10 + hours of concert listening with DRM-free MP3s, this time for solo instruments including harp and percussion. These are complete movements from concert suites. So now you can hear how composers from Baroque to the 20th Century wrote for these instruments.

Each concert for solo instrument runs approximately 20 minutes in length.

You'll hear the music of old favorites like Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Albinoni, Schumann, Brahms, and Rimsky-Korsakov.

But you'll also hear the work of newer composers like Elliot Carter, Xenakis, Carl Nielsen, John Cage, Kalevi Aho, Claude Debussy, Gordon Jacob, Marcel Grandjany, Benjamin Britten, Zoltan Kodaly, Eduard Lalo, Sir Edward Elgar, Shostakovich, Yi Chen, Hindemith, Max Reger, Glazunov, Saint-Saens, Haukur Tomasson, and others.

Because these MP3s are DRM-free, you can listen to them on any MP3 player or computer, from iPod to Zen, even XBox! If your car's multimedia system reads MP3s, you can even listen while you drive.

So whether you're stuck in traffic or sitting in Starbucks, you can learn anywhere, anytime.
