Choosing the right combination of instruments:

Mix a melodic instrument (i.e., a violin or flute) with an accompanying instrument (i.e., a guitar, harp or piano)











Mix melodic instruments the way so you have every part (high, middle, bass) covered (i.e., a violin,flute, viola, cello)










You can mix melodic instruments with accompanying instruments the way so you have the melodic instrument on the top, the accompanying in the middle and the bass melodic on the bottom (i.e., a flute, guitar, cello or violin, harp, cello)

If you choose to have a duo mixing two melodic instruments, try to have one playing in the high register, one in the lower (i.e., a violin, cello or flute, cello)
