The flute is one of the most popular and well-known instruments in the world. Many children choose the flute as their first instrument when they begin band class and continue to focus on mastering the instrument for years to come.
Flutes are some of the earliest known musical instruments, with the earliest models found in Europe, dating back to 35,000 to 43,000 years ago. Flutes belong in the woodwinds category, which often confuses people who aren’t well-versed in its history. While today’s flutes are overwhelmingly made of metal, the earliest flutes were made of wood, which is why they are still considered a woodwind. Unlike other woodwinds like clarinets and saxophones, flutes do not use reeds. The sound is produced by the flutist (or flautist) blowing air through the embouchure hole (a small hole in the head joint of the flute, found in the center of the lip plate).
