As you’re probably aware the drums are among the most popular percussion instruments and they are played across a wide variety of genres. However, the scope of percussion instruments goes way beyond the drums. In fact, there are so many members of this instrument family we couldn’t even begin to name them all in this short introduction. Contrary to the common notion, percussion instruments do not simply exist to provide highlights or accents within musical scores. In fact, one of the unique parts about percussion is that they make compositions livelier due to the pulse and rhythm they provide. These instruments create sound by being hit, shaken, rubbed, scraped, and other methods intended to make them vibrate. You can learn these techniques, as well as others, simply by enrolling in our percussion lessons available in a city near you! So search our site for teachers that specialize in various percussion instruments suck as Idiophones (wood block, crash cymbals, marimba, celesta), Membranophones (tom-toms, snare drum, timpani), Ethnic/World percussion (bodhran, djembe, gamelan, steelpan, tabla, dhol, berimbau, timbal), and Latin American percussive instruments (congas, bongos, timbales, maracas, gourds, shakers, cowbells).
