|Classical Music Guide|
The ClassicOL guide to classical music.
At relevant places throughout the site will be found links to brief guides. For example, on the violin page is A brief guide to the violin.
The guides are not intended to be, nor do they claim to be, works of scholarly depth and insight. They are intended to be of general interest to anyone with an enthusiasm for or involvement with classical music. Each guide is intended to stand alone though accumulative reading of the individual guides will provide readers with an overall view of classical music as formed from the sum of its interrelated parts.
Links exist between individual pages but, should readers wish to be more structured in their reading, the following list of contents will provide instant access to their chosen guides.
