Brass

Brass instruments are classified by the way they produce sound: the vibration of the player´s lips. While the valves, slides and keys on brass instruments are used to change their overall length and therefore the pitch, fine adjustment of harmonics comes from the player´s control over airflow and lip shape, known as the embouchure. Brasswinds include: Trumpet, Cornet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, and many more.
