A and an are indefinite articles as a/ an means any one of something.

We use a with a singular countable noun beginning in a consonant sound.

We use an before a singular countable noun beginning in a vowel sound.

We use the before all kinds of nouns (countable or uncountable; singular or plural) when it is clear from the context which one(s) we mean.
