  1. Instruments How many different kinds of instruments can you think of? Melophone trumpet harp guitar (ACCOUSTIC) Saxophone bass guitar electric guitar drums Tenor sax washtub bass violin cello Piano voice windpipes harmonica Washboard bugle bagpipes spoons Triangle clarinet cymbals banjo Trombone tuba keyboard bells Flute pipe organ piccolo snare drum Bass drum coronet bongos rain sticks Maracas castanets rhythm stick rattles

  2. Early types of instruments: These instruments date back to 1000 – 1200 B.C. Various flutes or recorders Pan Flute Pipes Lute – like a guitar and used by singers Fiddle Harpsichord - like a piano Double Harp – 2 sets of strings

  3. Music of the Middle Ages using many of the instruments shown. Middle Ages Music and Images

  4. As time went on instruments developed more and more. In the Classical time period the instruments become a little more refined. Slightly more modern piano More sophisticated flutes. Brass instruments were also improved upon.

  5. Classical Era Instrumental Music - Orchestra and piano solo Mozart Piano Concerto

  6. Instrument Families Instruments are grouped into families of similar sound or method of playing. For example: Percussion instruments are struck, where woodwinds are blown into through a reed. There are 5 main families of instruments * Strings *Woodwinds *Brass *Percussion *Keyboards

  7. STRING FAMILY String instruments produce sound through the vibrating of a string. String instruments can be plucked or bowed. Name some string Instruments: viola violin Ukulele double bass guitar mandolin harp banjo cello electric bass


  9. STRING FAMILY Classical String Instruments: Typically used in orchestral music Violin – the smallest and highest pitched Viola – slightly larger than a violin and a little lower in pitch. Cello – large and required the instrumentalist to be seated to play. The pitch is even lower Double Bass- the lowest pitch of the classical string instruments, you must stand while playing the double bass Trivia question: Which classical string instrument is also sometimes used in a Jazz Ensemble? Double Bass

  10. String Quartet String quartets were very popular during the time of Mozart String quartets consisted of 2 violins, 1 viola, and 1 cello http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5WMUnMGcb4&feature=player_detailpage

  11. STRING FAMILY Other String instruments used in various styles of music. Acoustic Guitar Electric Guitar Mandolin Banjo

  13. WOODWIND FAMILY A woodwind instrument produces sound when the player blows air against a sharp edge or through a reed, causing the air within its resonator (usually a column of air) to vibrate. Most of these instruments are made of wood but can be made of other materials, such as metals or plastics. Single reeds are used for clarinets and saxophones There are some instruments in the woodwind family that do not use a reed. Can you guess which one?

  14. WOODWINDS Some woodwind instruments have double reeds Bassoon Oboe Contrabassoon

  15. WOODWINDS Saxophone Family Like the Classical String Instruments there are also varying pitched saxophones. Soprano Saxophone Alto Saxophone Tenor Saxophone Baritone Saxophone

  16. WOODWINDS Flute Family Although we are used to seeing two types of flutes, there are many different sized of flutes. The size differences change the high or low sounds of the instruments. Piccolo- the highest sounding flute Standard flute – mid to high range Bass flute – is the lowest and largest of the flutes Alto flute – lower in sound and larger

  18. BRASS A brass instrument is a musical instrument whose sound is produced by vibration of air in a tubular resonator in sympathy with the vibration of the player's lips. Standard mouth piece for a trumpet

  19. BRASS Baritone – the highest of the low brass Tuba – lowest sound Low Brass Instruments Euphonium – slightly higher sound Trombone – like the baritone, it’s the highest of the low brass instruments

  20. BRASS High brass instruments Standard Trumpet mid-high range Flugelhorn mid-low range Piccolo trumpet highest range French horn mid-low range

  21. BRASS How do they work? The player buzzes air into the mouthpiece and pushes on valves to change the pitch. The more tubing, the lower the sound. The smaller the tubing, the higher the sound. Each brass instrument has it’s own mouthpiece.

  22. BRASS Valves vs. Slides Almost all Brass instruments use valves to change pitch, but some use a slide. Valves Slides

  23. BRASS Brass Quintets A Brass Quintet consists of 2 trumpets, 1 french horn, 1 trombone, and 1 tuba http://youtu.be/zR_GVUWllP4 The Canadian Brass

  26. PERCUSSION A percussion instrument is any object which produces a sound when hit with an implement or when it is shaken, rubbed, scraped, or otherwise acted upon in a way that sets the object into vibration.

  27. PERCUSSION Percussion instruments vary in size, style, colors, and material.

  28. PERCUSSION Percussion instruments are classified into 4 major areas. Idiophone – sound is made through vibrations of the entire body. Membranophone – sound is made when the membrane head is struck. Chordophone – a pitched sound is made when struck. Aerophone – sound is made when air is blown through.

  29. PERCUSSION Idiophones and Membranophones are the most common types of percussion instruments used. Idiophones

  30. PERCUSSION Membranophone The skin stretched over the head of a drum is called a membrane. This is what vibrates to make the sound.

  31. PERCUSSION Mallets are used to strike a percussion instrument, either idiophone or membranophone There are soft mallets There are hard mallets Soft mallets typically have felt or yarn to make the contact softer Hard mallets are typically made of wood or hard plastic. Drum sticks are like mallets, they are hard wood.

  36. KEYBOARDS A keyboard instrument is any musical instrument played using a musical keyboard. The most common of these is the piano. Other widely used keyboard instruments include organs of various types as well as other mechanical, electromechanical and electronic instruments

  37. KEYBOARDS Keyboard instruments have a standard keyboard of white and black keys for each note on the staff. There are differences between the keyboard instruments and how the sound is produced. For example, a piano has hammers. An organ uses air pumped through pipes.

  38. KEYBOARDS Inside of the piano Just like all instruments, the shorter and thinner strings are the higher pitches. The thicker and longer strings are the lower sounds. The piano key is pressed and a hammer in the inside is moved forward or down to hit the string.

  39. KEYBOARDS Organs and how they work. An organ uses air through pipes to make sound. When a key is pressed, it releases air into the pipe.

  40. KEYBOARDS The first organs had to have air pumped into them. It was the responsibility of the performer to pump air into it with their feet.
