What you are asking for is not genre. Examples of genre are rock, country, dance, techno, pop etc. What you are talking about are sections. Brass falls under two categories, low brass and high brass. Composer wouldn't be a section. I think you mean conductor, but that wouldn't really be a section. You've pretty much got the main ones and all of those can be divided up in different ways. Horns, treble strings, bass strings.
