Wind Family- Instruments in the wind family produce sound when the player blows into the instruments and air vibrates.

Woodwind- Instruments that make their sound when a musician blows air into or across the mouthpiece. They get their name from the fact that most of them were once made of wood, and some still are!

Brass- Instruments that produce sound when a player buzzesinto a mouthpiece, causing it to vibrate. Often, brass instruments are made of brass or other metals.
