Everything You Should Know about Musical Instruments

Dr. Pagliaro wrote this book in response to a need he found in his students and music associates. It was apparent that those with whom he was associated knew little to nothing about musical instruments that were not their major. This book introduces the reader to all the popular orchestral and band instruments, explains how they work, how to work them, and the role they play in the greater scheme of the world of music. For many years this book was use as a text in colleges and in the Band Repair School at West Point Academy.
