A Flute is a musical instrument that produces sound when a stream of air is directly against the edge of a hole, causing the air within the body of the instrument to vibrate.
The most Flutes are tubular, but some are globular or other shapes. It is a family of musical instruments in the wood wind group unlike wood wind instruments with reeds. It is mainly used in orchestras and big bands for classical performance and contemporary music. Because of its smoothness, it can play higher registers and lower registers.
Flute students at the IMLS also play in the Brass Band. Thereby they learn to play music together and how to work on a piece in a group.
