A wind instrument is a musical instrument that contains some type of resonator (usually a tube), in which a column of air is set into vibration by the player blowing into (or over) a mouthpiece set at the end of the resonator.
Although brass instruments were originally made of brass and woodwind instruments have traditionally been made of wood, the material used to make the body of the instrument is not always a reliable guide to its family type.
On the other hand, the cornett (not to be confused with the brass instrument cornet) and serpent, although made of wood (or PVC pipe in the case of modern serpents), are in the family of brass instruments because the vibration which originates the sound is done with the lips of the player.

Reed instruments are different: the end in the player's mouth is not open to the outside air, so the air is not maximally free to move in and out.
Attached to the instrument, they are (usually!) forced to vibrate at the natural frequency of the air in the tube.
