Musical instruments produce sounds through vibration of air molecules. Instruments are divided into four main classes: strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion. The science of acoustics studies how sound is produced and received.
String instruments: Instruments that produce sound through the vibration of strings, such as guitars and violins. Woodwind instruments: Instruments that produce sound through the vibration of thin pieces of wood, such as flutes and clarinets. Percussion instruments: Instruments that produce sound through the vibration of objects, such as drums and cymbals.
