Common percussion instruments include bass drum, snare drum, gong, cymbals, woodblock, tambourine, castanets, and triangle. They maintain the rhythm and provide special sounds to music. For those pitched percussion instruments such as timpani, marimba, Glockenspiel, chimes, piano, handbells, bianzhong, etc., they also produce pitches and melodic sounds. In fact, percussion music, especially drum music, can always electrify the audience with their vigorous rhythms. Connect to the MMIS to find out more.
