Take a deep breath and get ready to learn all about the woodwinds! This instrument family includes the flute, clarinet, oboe, and bassoon. So, what makes them alike? Woodwind musicians blow air into, against, or across the instrument. Some of these instruments use reeds – little pieces of wood that create vibrations and sound. Philadelphia Orchestra Piccolo, Erica Peel, will lead you through the different ways the woodwinds are played and their special place in the orchestra.
