Some well-known instruments in the brass family are the trombone, French horn, trumpet, and tuba. Instruments in the brass family make sounds when the player blows into the mouthpiece. Notice how these instruments look similar, yet very different.
Look at this picture of the French horn. This instrument was first used hundreds of years during foxhunts. Hunters used it to call hounds because it sounded a lot like a human voice. This is the most difficult instrument in the brass family to play.
