This section presents fundamental information about writing for woodwinds and brasswinds. The material presented here really only scratches the surface; much more could be written about any one of these instruments. In order to expand your knowledge further, study scores, method books, and orchestration books. Also, bear in mind that instrument ranges on wind instruments may vary depending on the instrumentalist and the make and model of the instrument being played. To be safe, you should generally avoid notes in the extremely low or extremely high registers of all wind instruments.
