Sound Generation

Sound is created when things oscillate, or vibrate. This is caused by energy acting on the
molecules . They move and spin and bash into each other. They get squashed (compression)
and then spread out (rarefaction). This makes waves in the molecules of the material the
sound is travelling through.


Wind, Vocal and Brass Instruments are all very similar in that they all use air passing
through a column to create the sound.

Wind and brass instruments use vibrations in pipes to create the vibration.
In brass instruments, the lips of the person playing create the vibration while a reed is
used in most woodwind instruments.
