PERCUSSION FAMILY Snare Drum Marimba Triangle Xylophone Djembe Tambourine
The Woodwind Family Saxophone Clarinet Flute Bassoon Oboe
Brass Family Trombone Trumpet French horn
The Saxophone and Clarinets use a mouthpiece with a single reed. The Bassoon and Oboe use double reeds, which are made of two reeds attached together at the base. Flutes are played by blowing across an opening at the end.
To play brass instrument blow vibrate your lips through a metal mouthpiece. To change the pitch on the Trombone, we move the slide in and out. On the Trumpet and French Horn, we use a combination of fingerings and lip tension to alter the pitch.
We make sounds on our percussion instruments by striking them or shaking them. We use mallets to tap on our Snare Drum, Marimba, Triangle, and Xylophone and we use our bare hands to tap the Djembe and Tambourine.
