What are swinging jazz music

Wind instruments

Alto horn

The alto horn was developed after the invention of the valves for brass wind instruments. Its tube is conical. It expands almost continuously and determines the large, two-dimensional sound. The alto horn is usually tuned in Eb and its sound lies between the trumpet and the euphonium. to the shop

Recorders

The recorder is the name of a complete family of instruments ranging from the piccolo to the sub-bass. The special thing about it is that all flutes in this family can be played in the same way. The recorder opens up the whole world of historical and contemporary music to the player. to the shop

Flute

The transverse flute, also known as the Böhm flute, is at home in all musical eras and genres. Flutists are just as active as soloists, in chamber music, in symphony and wind orchestras as in folk, rock and jazz music. Flutes also have regular places in marching bands and music corps. to the shop

Euphonium

The euphonium was developed after the invention of the valves for brass wind instruments. Its tube is conical. It expands almost continuously and determines the large, two-dimensional sound. The euphonium is usually tuned in Bb and its sound lies between the trumpet and the tuba. to the shop

bassoon

As a representative of woodwind instruments, the bassoon is used more for melancholy or humorous sound experiences. In the mouthpiece, two reed leaves lying opposite each other are set in vibration when blown to produce the sound. Modern alternative composers are increasingly relying on the soft sounds of these wind instruments. to the shop

Fanfare - signal instruments

The fanfare is a natural trumpet. Only natural tones can be played on it. Today they are mostly played in traditional fanfare parades and in military bands on special occasions and folk festivals. to the shop

Flugelhorn

The flugelhorn is the sonically softer equivalent of the trumpet. This soft sound is produced by a pipe that, as seen from the mouthpiece, constantly expands and ends in a wide-open sound funnel. to the shop

Hunting horn

The hunting horn is the classic bugle used by hunters. It signals the beginning, the type and the end of the hunt. Hunting success is also indicated with hunting horns. The size ranges from a fist-sized pocket horn to a parforce horn over a meter in size. to the shop

clarinet

The clarinet is a very versatile woodwind instrument. Their sound ranges from very soft to crisp and clear. From serious music, in a marching band to jazz - the clarinet has its permanent place as a solo instrument or in an ensemble. to the shop

cornet

The cornet is the sonically softer and gentler sister of the classical trumpet. It blends harmoniously into the soundscape of the strings and concentrates on the deep and rather lively bars. High and dynamic passages can only be mastered well by real skills. Today the cornet is played in brass bands and music corps of the military. to the shop

Oboe - English horn

The oboe, also called the English horn, is a typical orchestral instrument. It is blown through a mouthpiece with double reed leaves. The air flow causes the two ends of the tube to vibrate and give the oboe the typical sharp and nasal sound. The oboe is easy to hear and recognize in every concert. to the shop

trombone

The trombone is the oldest brass instrument that can be played in semitones. It was long forgotten. Ludwig van Beethoven put them back in the foreground. As a deep brass instrument, it is now played in all genres in solo or in an ensemble. to the shop

saxophone

The saxophone was developed by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax around 1840. It combines a brass body with a mouthpiece similar to a clarinet. The saxophone is mostly played in wind music and as a solo instrument in jazz. The sound is created in the mouthpiece with a so-called reed leaf. Therefore the saxophone is a member of the woodwind instruments. to the shop

Tenor horn / baritone horn

Tenor and baritone horns are played in symphonic wind orchestras, brass groups and musicians' trains. The oval structure makes handling easy and pleasant. The tenor horn has clear highs, the baritone horn soft lows. Those who can play one can also master the other - if they can also read the notes on the violin or bass clef. to the shop

Trumpet

The trumpet is considered to be the queen of wind instruments. Whether in solo or orchestra, in classical music, pop, jazz and brass music, the trumpet sounds with a radiantly bright tone everywhere. Since the trumpet got the valve in 1813, trumpeters have been able to play melodies in semitone steps. to the shop

tuba

The tuba was developed after the invention of the valves for brass instruments. Your tube is conical. It expands almost continuously and determines the large, two-dimensional sound. It has long since been given a regular place in brass orchestras and brass ensembles. to the shop

French horn

The French horn sounds soft and warm. In wind orchestras, its sound blends in harmoniously with horn or woodwind chords. But it can also create majestic-theatrical or longing moods in the symphony orchestra. The horn is considered to be the oldest wind instrument known to man. to the shop
