The Flute Wind | Woodwind | Edge-blown Aerophone I was drawn to the flute, as it is different to the other woodwind instruments. Made of metal, it looks totally different, and it has a completely different embouchure. Once I got the hang of it I joined larger ensembles at school and for my county, I loved being able to play the high, soring melodies. It was originally made of wood though, the Flute is an edge-blown aerophone , woodwind instrument. It is also one of the oldest instruments in the classical orchestra and so composers have been writing music for the Flute for hundreds of years. If you are thinking about learning to play an instrument, or you’ve decided, but aren’t sure which one, let me help you choose. We can chat, and you can have a go at different instruments, to see which one would suit you best. If you leave your email, or ask your mum and dad to, I will get back to you, or your parents, with more information.

- Clarinet | Dubai College Music
The Clarinet Wind | Woodwind | Single Reed Aerophone I moved on to the Clarinet from the Recorder. It was a new challenge, a single reed to deal with and different fingerings. Based on its predecessor the Chalumeau, the Clarinet is generally accepted to have been invented by Johann Christoph Denner in the early 1700s. The Clarinet has a mellow, woody sound, very different to the recorder. Learning to play the Clarinet gave me the opportunity to play in the beginner band at school. I made new friends and had a great experience. A favourite of classical composers, with many concertos to choose from. The Clarinet is also a key player in Big Band and of course Jazz. A single reed aerophone, the B♭ soprano clarinet and A soprano clarinet are the most popular.
