  • Mono/polyphony?

    Can horns (tuba, sax, trumpet, flute) play more than one note at a time? Like can you play chords on a tuba, sax, flute or any other kind of wind/brass instrument?

    Yes...sort of.

    I can't say about woodwinds, but for a while I had to work to overcome a "double buzz" on trumpet. Within the space of the mouthpiece, I was actually getting two separate buzzes at once.

    In my case, the second buzz was the same pitch as the first, but out of tune. I couldn't play intervals with it.

    There are people like Roland Kirk that play two horns at once.

        Its called multi-phonics. I've tried but cannot do it myself, but here is an example of multi-phonics and a type of beat boxing on the tuba

          Woodwind .. you can sort of play in between two octaves of the same note at once, if that counts.. As far as chords (2 or more clean notes at once) on a saxophone? Nope, but you can play really really fast!

              My eldest son can do that sort of stuff on his trombone...no idea how, though.
