Hello and welcome to the museumofworldmusic dot com site – My name is Graeme Gibson. I am the creator of the content on this site and owner of the website museum of world music dot com. The goal is to document all the world’s musical instruments according to their respective tiers as organized by the Hornbostel and Sachs System of musical instrument classification.

The system on my site uses five tiers 1.) Idiophones 2.) Membranophones drums 3.) Chordophones – stringed instruments 4.) Aerophones – wind instruments, the fifth and last tier being ‘electrophones’ used as the original label to classify electrical and electronic instruments.
