  Orchestration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Orchestration is the study and practice of adapting music for an orchestra or musical ensemble.
However, in practice orchestration is often used interchangeably with arrangement, rewriting a piece of pre-existing music for a specific set of instruments or voices, often in harmony or with additional original material, and both terms often describe the scoring of material which is not pre-existing.
An orchestrator will usually be presented with a piece in short score (that is, written on around three or four musical staves) or else the piece will be written as if it were to be played on a piano.
