This highly illustrated guide provides an introduction to the history, methods of playing and repertoire of over 100 mucical instruments, both classical and popular.

The development of musical instruments is a fascinating story: from the earliest music-making devices right through to the varied and sophisticated instruments being made and played today. Instrument-making is a highly skilled craft and pieces are often beautiful creations, works of art in themselves. Today, many early instruments are valued collectors’ items.

Whether you are a fan of jazz and blues, classical or pop music, an active musician or a passive listener, Collins Gem Musical Instruments will take you on a journey of discovery through the develpment and playing techniques of more than 100 instruments. For some, many of the instruments in this book will be new or unusual, so an example of the instrument in performance in a range of genres is given, as well as variations on the instrument from around the globe.
