Percussion is not just limited to playing the drums — there are so many other kinds of percussion instruments
in the world! Percussion instruments include any instrument that makes a sound when it is hit, shaken, or scraped. The percussion instrument family is believed to include the oldest musical instruments that came about during primitive and ancient times; which makes the possibilities of what you can use to create rhythms.. endless!
The Cajon is a versatile music instrument that is suitable for both beginners without any prior music knowledge as well as professional drummers: the fact that it is a "simple" box drum allows you to either play it as it is or extend your range of sonic possibilities through the use of various Cajon accessories.
The Cajon makes a great solo, ensemble or accompaniment instrument: you can either simply play along to music or play rhythmic patterns for people to dance to, play alone or as a group.
They are portable, easy to store and easy to carry around - so you can practice or jam anytime, anywhere!
Yes, the Xylophone is actually part of the percussion family! The wooden bars on the Xylophone are arranged like the keys of a piano and produces a pitch when struck with mallets.
The Xylophone is often used in orchestras as a serious instrument but it is also easy and fun for beginners to pick up.
