Which musical instrument are you? The quiz...

Don't know if you're back-desking it with the violins or counting rests with the trombones? Here's the quiz to help you find out who you really are (and perhaps where you should be investing your musical talents).

Shakespeare period instruments

It's the biggest musical conundrum of all - which instrument will suit you and your personality? Sure, you charm the entire concert hall during the second movement, but will that oboe case hinder you at the party afterwards? Double basses might look cool, but they're hard work on the night bus home. And spare a thought for those euphophonists... enjoy explaining what you actually play for the rest of your life.

Here's another great quiz from our friends at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, to help resolve things once and for all. Give their quiz a go, and tell us who you'll be in the Classic FM orchestra in the comments section below. (We got the triangle. Go on, judge us.)
