The Band of Instruments is a versatile ensemble of musicians based in Oxford, England, well known for its imaginative programmes and persuasive performances. It was formed in 1995 by Gary Cooper, and its musical director is now Roger Hamilton.

The Band has been funded by the Arts Council of Great Britain and the National Lottery, and has been Early Music Ensemble in Residence at the Faculty of Music in the University of Oxford. Appearances have included many BBC Broadcasts, the opening concert at the Southwark Festival, performances at St. John's Smith Square, St. Giles Cripplegate, the National Gallery, Musicfest Aberystwyth, and the Tudeley, Semley and South Bank Early Music Festivals. It gives regular concerts at many venues in Oxford, including one for the recent inauguration of the redevelopment of the Ashmolean Museum.

The Band's recordings include music by Purcell, Rameau, Charpentier & Vivaldi. It has also accompanied New College Choir on a disc of Purcell anthems for CRD.
