Woodwind Instruments

The sound from a woodwind instrument is produced by blowing through a mouthpiece, against an edge or by a vibrating reed. The pitch is varied by opening or closing holes in the body of the instrument.

Although many early instruments were made from wood, the name "woodwind" is now somewhat misleading as some instruments in this family are constructed from metal and plastic as well as from wood.
