This is a list of musical instruments in alphabetical order.

The singing human voice is also sometimes considered an instrument. Voices are classified according to their range into the following categories:

  • Soprano, the highest female voice
  • Mezzo-soprano, just lower than a soprano
  • Alto or contralto, the lower female voice
  • Tenor, the highest standard male voice
  • Baritone, male voice between tenor and bass
  • Bass, the lowest male voice
  • Castrato, a castrated male with a high voice
  • Countertenor, a high male singer with alto range (like the castrato), generally using falsetto
