Did you know…

A modern orchestra’s woodwind section usually includes flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons. The woodwind family of instruments includes, from the highest sounding instruments to the lowest – the piccolo, flute, oboe, English Horn, clarinet, E-flat clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon and contrabassoon.

Woodwinds provide colour and can be used for just about anything. Like the strings and the brass, they can play as a choir, can split up and provide secondary or primary themes, as well as solo gloriously.

The earliest existing woodwind instruments, which exist in fragments, are flutes made from mammoth and vulture bones which date back over 40,000 years. These are the oldest surviving musical instruments which provide melody, rather than just rhythm.
