Mr. Miller has attempted to write a book about a very broad subject area and, unfortunately, did not really do it justice. For someone with a novice background, it's sort of an overview of the subject. I, too, found the sampled sounds on the CD examples somewhat annoying, and yes, there are folks out there who can do a better job. It is probably useful for someone who has some musical training, say, as a singer or instrumentalist, but no college music theory courses. The pop music style sections could be useful to someone who wants to put together a band and really doesn't know how to do it.

Unfortunately, Mr. Miller has tried to make it relevant to someone who is going to be hired to arrange. I am a retired music teacher and band director, and I think that even if one of my students wanted to learn to arrange I would help him find more in-depth material. The marching band section is very dated, and contains some pretty outlandish statements. In referring to the lack of double reeds, he says, "That's right, for some reason you don't find a lot of oboes and bassoons in marching bands..." Perhaps he does not recall his instrument methods classes at Indiana University. The reason for the lack of double reeds is simple...it is virtually impossible to play one effectively while marching. The player could suffer serious lip injury and the delicate reed could be damaged...not to mention the instrument itself. Bassoonists must be seated to play just to hold the instrument correctly! (Perhaps his comment was meant tongue-in-cheek.)

I find most of his other comments on marching bands to be perhaps correct in 1970, but not for the 21st century - and his arrangement is similarly dated and hokey.

His section on drum and bugle corps is even less accurate...or should I say, too cursory to be of any use. The changeover from G bugles to B flat instruments in the early 2000s is not so simple as he describes.

So...the book is perhaps useful for a high school student in a garage band who then wants to make things a little more sophisticated. Beyond that, I'm afraid I cannot recommend it...which is unfortunate, because I am always looking for books on this subject that I could recommend to my students, and there are very few available that are not overly technical.

The book is based on a quite interesting approach: guide the reader step-by-step on how to compose a piece, either classical or not.
There are quite good hints and fairly simple examples so that the reader can get a rough idea of the whole process.
That's point: if intended as a very generic and approximate introduction the book does its job.
When it comes to how to combine the different instruments by providing some patterns, examples or suggestions, the book does not give a proper answer if not at all.
And this is a pity because this is the key aspect of any orchestration process and the author seems to know how to explain such complex topics to the beginners...

I bought the Idiots Guide to Orchestration while being aware of exceptionally strong criticism of the book. The first critiques I encountered on Amazon were clearly from experts in the field who, to my mind, were trying to impress me with their great knowledge. My reaction to those critiques was really "where is your book?". So I bought the Idiot's guide. I'm a jazz guitarist trying to glean whatever I can without an enormous commitment to years of study. The ideas about harmonisation and inversion are solid and reliable information. The also remind me that their are many inversions possible that are outside of the possibilities of the guitar. The biggest criticism by other reviewers was regarding the included CD. The sampled sounds are, in many cases, absolutely awful. But I think his musical intention is accurate enough. I'm still able to learn from them (although the big band sounds and the trumpet in particular are some of the worst in history!). So, I'm still reading the book. I'm reasonable happy with it. It didn't cost me $100!! It was cheap and it was an "idiot's guide" - basic stuff. So, in summary, helpful, fairly clear, not expensive and quite enjoyable if you can live with the poor audio samples. But their is much more to the subject, clearly.

A readable CD would have really made this work - it will not fully mount on either of two computers. A visual inspection shows some foxing and a weird "bubble" in the CD. Why not post the audio online? I cannot see why you wouldn't, given that people are already posting a PDF of the text online. Wasted money.
