Music Performance Videos


Below is a list of individual performers and performing groups who you should listen to and watch.  Please feel free to watch these performances to hear examples of representative tone and technique on each instrument.  If you find a really good link, please send it to me so I can add it to this page. This page is a massive undertaking and as always, will perpetually be under construction and new videos will be added as they are found.  The performers listed are in no particular order.  My goal with this page was to provide as many examples of great musicianship as possible.
