Guide to Musical Instruments
All musical instruments are categorized into different musical families: Brass, Woodwind, String, Percussion, and Keyboards. Sort through these categories to find the instrument that you are looking for, as well as learn a little bit about what makes it work!
Percussion instruments are classified as just about anything that you can whack with a stick. (Being more refined, the player uses a drum stick or mallet .) In these instruments, the sound source is a vibrating membrane or vibrating piece of solid material, made to vibrate by hitting with different forces. Some forms of percussion also involve instruments that are shaken, rubbed, or somehow moved to cause vibration.
