The physics of wind instrument playing is unfortunately not natural. I would never use the word force, but you need to generate a pressure differential. It is this difference between the pressure in your mouth vs. the zero pressure of the standing air column in the instrument that is what allows the standing column to vibrate. The only way to create the pressure in your mouth is to actively push the air. Again, this is not "X Games" pushing, only it needs to be roughly what you need to blow up a medium sized balloon. If you just "let the air flow into" a balloon, you wouldn't have an inflated balloon.


I like to pair this sort of talk with the fact that you don't need to push air into a wind instrument at all! The reed buzzing is really just an actuator.


Contemplate the following:

Some of Boarders have already done this with a clarinet using latex glove material as a membrane between the mouthpiece and the rest of the horn.
