The clarinet is a cylindrical-bore pipe with a mouthpiece that resembles a beak and uses a single cane reed. The lower end flares out into a bell. Because it has a range of more than three octaves, it can produce both very low and very high notes. Available in plastic.

The flute is a musical instrument of the woodwind family. Unlike woodwind instruments with reeds, a flute is an aerophone or reedless wind instrument that produces its sound from the flow of air across an opening.

The saxophone is a single reed instrument that has its place in everything from pop and big band to jazz and classical. Depending on the player, it can sound mellow or strong. The Eb Alto Saxophone, the 2nd highest pitched saxophone was made popular by performers such as Charlie Parker and Nat “Cannonball” Adderley.

The trumpet is the highest of the brass wind instruments, composed of a long metal tube looped once and ending in a flared bell. The pressure and shape of the lips in the mouthpiece and the strength of the air pressure, used in combination with the valves, determine the pitch produced. Brass lacquer.

It is also the highest sounding instrument of the string family. The term violin means "little viola" in Italian. It has four strings and is played by placing the instrument under one's chin and drawing the bow, made of horsehair, across the strings.
