A very easy to use and attractive site. The use of the tabs to navigate the various sections of the orchestras worked well. The information provided was easy to read.

Technical Remarks:

The audio/video did not work with my PC set up, so I could not listen to the specific excerpts presented for each instrument in the orchestra.

Time spent reviewing site: I spent only a few minutes reviewing the site, but this resource would be a great addition to an online, or a face-to-face, college Music Appreciation course.
