I’ve been looking for a set of A-Z musical instrument posters for our music room. But most sets seem to skimp on the difficult instruments (quick- name an instrument beginning with I, N, Q or Y!) and many are just line drawings.
So I’ve created my own with all letters represented including I for Igil, N for Nyckelharpa, Q for Quena and Y for Yanqin.
You can download the first set – letters A through H – here for free and I’ve included links for the other two packs and the first ‘expansion pack’ below. They’re just £3.90 (around $6.50) on the TES store.

This is Set 1 (containing 8 posters) of the A-Z Musical Instruments Poster Pack, a collection of 26 alphabetical posters in three packs depicting a range of common and uncommon musical instruments. Set 1’s eight posters include the Accordion, Bassoon, Clarinet, Didgeridoo, Electric Guitar, Flute, Glockenspiel and Harp.
Each instrument poster features a highlighted alphabet-letter, colour and icon coded categorisation, a large photograph of the instrument, smaller supporting photographs of features and playing positions and an information box detailing alternative names, era of development, related instruments and more. Just the resource to brighten your music room walls or use as a hands on lesson resource!
It also includes a PowerPoint presentation with audio files (or YouTube links ) of each instrument.Use the PowerPoint presentation to introduce new instruments, feature an ‘instrument of the day’ or supplement other music lessons.
