INDEX NEXT UP LAST ATG Families of Instruments Families of Instruments

There are six families of instruments in general. They are Brass, Electric, Percussion, Strings, Woodwind and Voice. There are some inconsistencies for example, flutes and saxophones are made of metal but they are considered woodwind instruments, and the piano which uses strings to make the sound is grouped under the percussion family (because the inside action is small hammers hitting the strings).
