The violin is the highest pitched string instrument.
Piccilo is the highest pitch instrument in the woodwinds
A violin plays the highest.
Woodwind instruments are instruments that used to be made of wood. These include the flute, piccolo, oboe, english horn, clarinet, and bassoon. This is in order from highest to lowest sounding instrument.
Picolo (a really tiny flute)
The Piccolo is the highest in the whole band. Not the Flute.
It's the piccolo.
The highest sounding string instrument, called the violin, is slightly smaller than its cousin instrument, the viola. Other members of the stringed instrument group are the bass and the cello, each played standing up or sitting down. ~ Hexedgirl92
I believe its a piccolo
No, the piccolo is, followed by the flute.
NO the trombone is! :D
violen The violin is a stringed instrument. The highest pitched woodwind is probably the Fife.
The Piccolo's highest C is the highest note on the piano (C8), and with the use of alternate fingerings, the Piccolo can play higher.
High notes meaning high sounding? Yes, of course! The violin is the smallest string instrument in the orchestra, therefore making the highest pitched sounds. =D Bases can make high-pitched sounds too though. =)
The piccolo, it is an octave higher sounding then the flute.
The piccolo produces the highest notes.
They play an octave higher than the flute and are the highest-pitched instrument in the orchestra. Any parts they play stand out above the rest of the ensemble.
The violin is the stringed instrument with the highest pitch. The viola is slightly lower, and it is followed by the cello, and then finally the double bass. The double bass is the lowest string instrument found in an orchestra.
The violin is the highest string instrument, being able to play generally up to a E7, though great violinists may be able to play all the way up to C8.
A piccolo is one octave higher than a flute.
Generally the triangle, but there are some really big (i.e. low-sounding) triangles, and some really small bells and crotales. The celesta is also very high-pitched.
If you really wanna' be specific, the Piccolo is as high as it gets in pretty much everything. It acts as highest voice in both wind and full orchestral ensembles.
One that is capable of very high pitched sounds is the highest notes of the Pipe Organ. The piccolo is the highest wind instrument; small triangles and the highest notes of the orchestra bells & glockenspiel are very high percussion sounds, but synthesizers and the theremin can probably make the highest usable pitches.
The piccolo plays one octave higher than the flute.
A normal violin has 4 strings. Starting with the lowest sounding string, the strings are normally tuned to the following notes: the G below 'Middle C' the D above 'Middle C' the A above 'Middle C' the E above that A. To get the best possible sound from the instrument each string must be made a different thickness. The lowest sounding string is the thickest and the highest sounding string is the thinnest.

No "one" instrument leads the orchestra ... the conductor leads the orchestra. There are occasions where a solo instrument is featured as the leading instrument, but it's still the conductor who sets the tempo and phrasing.
The violin is the smallest stringed instrument in an orchestra.
Double Bass. (The Piccolo is- I believe- the highest sounding member of the woodwind family of standard orchestral instruments whilst the Double Bass is the lowest sounding member of the String family).
No the piccolo is not the smallest instrument in the orchestra the finger symbols are
Strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion are the instrument families of the orchestra.
Piece for solo instrument and orchestra
No, a saxophone isn't considered an orchestra instrument because it's almost never used in orchestra.
In a string orchestra, an orchestra with violin, cello, viola, and bass, the bass is the largest and lowest instrument. However, if you were looking for the largest string instrument in a full orchestra, the piano would be the instrument for which you are looking.
A work for orchestra and solo instrument is called a concerto.
The double bass is the largest instrument used in a modern orchestra.
It's used in orchestra.
A Standard orchestra but with only one instrument of each instrument
In a full orchestra, various band instruments are added to the string ensemble. The least common woodwind instrument in a full orchestra is the saxophone.
No. The guitar is not a standard instrument in the orchestra.
The sounding board is the part of an instrument which turns the vibrations from one or more bridges into vibrations in the body and air mass of an instrument. In the piano, it is the wood under the strings.
This depends vastly on the orchestra. Percussionists may use a wide variety of ethnic and inventive instruments, including whistles, chimes, and cymbals.
Any instrument can be included in the orchestra provided the composer has written a part for it. It's the composer of the piece who determines which and how many of each instrument is required to perform his or her works.
The triangle is a percussion instrument. In orchestra, it is simply used as an effect.
That depends entirely on which orchestra is in question.
The largest brass instrument is the tuba.
