Wind instrument

A wind instrument is a type of musical instrument where the player blows into (or over) a mouthpiece to produce sound. They typically fit into two categories: woodwind instruments and brass instruments.[1] Woodwind instruments include oboe, clarinet, flute, and saxophone.[2] The brass instruments include the bugle, trumpet, trombone, cornet and tuba.
