A flute is a deflection aerophone in which a stream of air is led over an edge (cutting edge) at which it begins to vibrate (compare the articles woodwind instrument and pipe). In the Hornbostel-Sachs system, flutes are therefore referred to as cutting instruments. In everyday language, "flute" usually stands for the transverse flute or the recorder. Pan flutes consist of several single-tone flutes connected to each other.
There are flutes with and without a core gap, an air channel that guides the air jet to the blowing edge. On flutes without a core gap, the air jet is formed by the player's lips and/or tongue.
Further divisions and designations result from where one blows into the flute, how the pitch is influenced, whether the lower end is closed or not, whether it is a single flute tube or an instrument with several flutes, and how these are played (directly blown or with valves, controlled by a mechanism or a keyboard, as with the organ). The culture from which a flute originates is also used for classification.
