Modern flutes are made of silver, gold or platinum. Mostly are made out of silver or silver. It’s very rare to see made out of gold.Flute is a very old instrument that are used since stone age, flute that time were bamboo flutes. It is a very long for a tradition of Orient. The Sumerians and Egyptians were the first people who is able to add finger holes into bamboo flutes. Which enabled for them to produce several basic notes.Ancient Greeks also had different kind of flute. Instead of having 3 to 4 holes it had six finger-holes for flute. Flute was regarded as an instrument for normal people. Instruments such as oboe was for high social standings in Ancient Greeks.Flutes now days in orchestras are called transverse flutes, is a small combine of the Ancient Greeks flute and the modern recorder. The first transverse flutes are in Europe comes from Etruscan iconography from the 4th to the 1st centuries BC.Oboes:Oboe is a pretty big instrument. It is 2 feet long black cylinder with metal keys covering its holes. The mouth piece is different from Clarinet and Saxophone. It uses a double reed, which makes the reed vibrates when you blow through the Oboe. The vibration makes the oboe move, and creates sound/the regular oboe first appeared in the mid-17th century. That time is was called a Hautbois then it became Oboe where we called nowClarinet:People normally mistaken for an oboe, except for the mouthpiece of the Clarinet which uses a single reed for it. The look of it is similar. It has a black body and many different kind of keys.Clarinet has been improved over the last few century.

Like the oboe, the bassoon uses a double reed, which is fitted into a curved metal mouthpiece.The modern bassoon has a colorful and complex past. Bassoon was evolved from a 16th century. The Bassoon is different from since the 16th century and now. There were more holes than usual. The ancestor of the bassoon was fashioned out using a single piece of wood rather than the four separate sections common. After that it became the Bassoon we know today.During the 18th and the 19th centuries the bassoon improved a lot. I got evolved from the 1713  a 3 key model then became the six keys during Hayden’s time. The present version of bassoon has 24 keys Summary in classI started to play clarinet since grade 6, clarinet was something I’ve been thinking to play for MYP band, because I really like the sound of the clarinet and always wanted to try it. After a few class I really want to develop my skills on clarinet. Coming to this year I improved so much that I can’t imagine, being able to complete songs I’ve never thought of that I would be able to do that.
