The flute is the oldest of all instruments that produce pitched sounds (not just rhythms), and was originally made from wood, stone, clay or hollow reeds like bamboo.
At half the size of a standard flute, piccolos play the highest notes of all the woodwinds; in the orchestra one of the flute players will also play piccolo if that instrument is required.
The oboe is a 2-foot long black cylinder with metal keys covering its holes, and its mouthpiece uses a double reed, which vibrates when you blow through it.
The English horn is actually closely related to the oboe, also uses a double reed, and is played in the same manner.
The clarinet could easily be mistaken for an oboe, except for the mouthpiece, which uses a single reed.
The smaller E-flat clarinet is just like a standard clarinet, but about half the length. Its shorter size allows it to play higher notes.
This is the grandfather of clarinet family. The bass clarinet is so large that its top and bottom are bent to make it easier for musicians to hold and play.
The bassoon is a long pipe, doubled in half, made of wood, with many keys. The bend in the pipe makes it possible for musicians to play it comfortably.
The contrabassoon is the grandfather of the wind section and is so much larger than a regular bassoon that its tube is doubled over twice to allow the player to hold it.
The trumpet is a brass instrument commonly used in classical and jazz ensembles. The trumpet group ranges from the piccolo trumpet—with the highest register in the brass family—to the bass trumpet, pitched one octave below the standard B♭ or C trumpet.
The French horn's 18 feet of tubing is rolled up into a circular shape, with a large bell at its end. There are anywhere from 2 to 8 French horns in an orchestra, and they play both melody and harmony as well as rhythm.
The trombone is the only instrument in the brass family that uses a slide instead of valves to change pitch. A standard trombone is made of long thin brass pipes.
The grandfather of the brass family. Tuba is the largest and lowest brass instrument and anchors the harmony not only of the brass family but the whole orchestra with its deep rich sound.
Lessons in Clarinet, Oboe, Trumpet, Saxophone, Flute, and Trombone are offered to students at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Lessons focus on basics of note and rhythm reading and breathing technique.
Our teachers make the learning process fun and enjoyable through games, activities, and different styles of music such as pop, rock, jazz, and more.
