The flute is a member of the woodwind family even though they are mainly made from metal. Occasionally you can find them made of wood or even precious metals like gold!
The sound is created by blowing air across a hole in the mouthpiece.
A musician who plays the flute can be referred to as a flute player, flautist, flutist or, less commonly, fluter or flutist.
