Saxophones are in the family of woodwind instruments and played with a single-reed mouthpiece similar to a clarinet. Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone in 1840.

SAXOPHONE

A musical instrument in the brass family, a player vibrates his or her lips to create a vibration in the air column. The slide mechanism varies to change the pitch, while modern trombones use a rotary valve for the same reason.

TROMBONE

Most commonly used in classical or jazz pieces, the trumpet has the highest register in the brass family. They date back to 1500BC and were used as signalling devices in battle or hunting.

StringInstruments 

This wooden string instrument is the smallest and highest-pitched instrument in the violin family, and typically has four strings. It is usually played by drawing a bow across its strings, although the strings can be plucked by hand. They feature in all sorts of different kinds of music.

VIOLIN

This is slightly larger than the violin, which produces a lower and deeper sound. It provides something of a middle ground between the violin and the cello.

VIOLA

An acoustic guitar transmits the vibrations of the strings into the air, rather than amplify it with electricity. The sounds waves from the strings resonate throughout the entire guitar, which is what creates the sound.

ACOUSIC GUITAR

The classic guitar is the member of the guitar family that is used in classical music. It is an acoustic wooden guitar with nylon strings.

BONGOS

An electric keyboard is very much like a piano but it is a lot cheaper and can be transported in a much better way. It doesn’t quite produce the sound that a piano does, although digital effects are helping to create as close a sound as possible.
