What are the four orchestral families in pitch order?
The four orchestral familes are percussion, brass, strings and woodwinds. However, this is not the true order because persussion instruments do not always have a defined pitch, and they could be in any pitch range. The other three families, brass, string and woodwinds, can be placed in pitch order: Woodwinds (main and related) Brass Strings

Why are the string instruments positioned at the front of the orchestra?
String instruments produce a softer sound than many of the others. To avoid drowning them out, the woodwinds and brass are farther from the audience. The percussion instruments are even further back. It is also the reason an orchestra will have two or three times as many string players as there are other instruments.
