A musical instrument is a device used for creating music. There are many different families of instruments, including

  • Percussion - Hitting things to make them vibrate
  • Brass - Making the air inside the instrument vibrate depending on how you blow through it
  • Woodwind - Using reeds or blowing in a certain way to make the air or reed vibrate
  • Strings - Strings vibrate when plucked or bowed
  • Keyboard - Very similar to percussion. They overlap in the tuned percussion area
