The flute is the smallest member of this family and so makes the highest sounds. All the instruments of this family make very different sounds to each other and are used in different types of music. All apart from the flute require reeds to make the sound (these will need to be replaced regularly) Pupils may start on these instruments from year 3 or 4 but they need to be big enough to manage the instrument. Sometimes, a tutor may advise a move to a different instrument in the family which may suit the pupil better after taking aptitude, mouth shape and size of the player into account. The bassoon is the lowest sounding instrument of this group.
