Woodwind: Some History

Woodwind instruments are the oldest along with a drum and some other percussion instruments. On many pastoral plots, pictures of antiquity, you can see all kinds of pipes and pipes, which our ancestors played on. The material was at hand. Reed reeds, bamboo and other twigs served as the basis for future flutes. Nobody knows who and when guessed to make holes in them. However, wind instruments made from improvised materials have forever taken their place in the hearts of people. People realized that as the barrel increased, the pitch changed, and this understanding served as an impetus for the improvement of instruments. Gradually, they changed until they were transformed into modern woodwinds. To this day, musicians lovingly call these instruments “wood” or “wood”, although this name has long ceased to reflect the material from which they are made. Today it is not tubes of natural origin, but metal for flutes and saxophones, ebonite for clarinets, plastic for recorders. AUTHENTIC WOODEN INSTRUMENTS Nevertheless, the tree remains unchanged material of authentic woodwind instruments, which are very popular and sound on many stage venues of the world. These include, for example, duduk, zurna, miserable, transverse flutes of the peoples of the world and other instruments. The voices of these instruments evoke the call of ancestors in people’s souls. All these tools are united by a common system of holes – holes, which are created in order to increase or decrease the length of the barrel of the tool. KIND OF WOODEN AND COPPER INSTRUMENTS Woodwind instruments, however, have some kind of affinity with brass instruments. This kinship is that air is needed to extract sound, which is released by the lungs. These two groups of tools have no other common features. Wood and copper instruments can be combined into a brass band. It’s funny One conductor, himself, being a violinist, was very fond of wind instruments. The sounds of stringed instruments seemed very transparent and weightless to him. The sounds of “copper” he called “meat”, and the sounds of “wood” for him were like a good seasoning to the main dish. Listening to wind instruments, he felt music better, felt it. LABIAL AND CANTABLE WOODEN SPIRIT INSTRUMENTS According to the method of sound extraction, woodwinds are labial, which include flute and reed or reed, which include clarinet, saxophone, bassoon and oboe. In the first case, the musician does not have to spend money on canes and mouthpieces, and in the second, on the contrary, he has to worry about changing them periodically. Nevertheless, these expenses are justified by the beauty of sound and timbre of instruments. WHICH OF THE TOOLS WILL THE CHILD SUIT? For small children, woodwind instruments are just what you need. As a rule, they begin to train on copper instruments when strength appears and the muscular corset strengthens, although exceptions occur. As for the woodwinds, the perfect choice for kids is the recorder. Playing it is simple and easy, since it does not require any effort from the respiratory apparatus. Woodwind instruments are instruments of great potential and great potential. In the entire history of mankind, they have repeatedly proved this. Let’s appreciate them and we!
