Drums

A drum kit, or drum set, is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments, typically cymbals, which are attached to stands allowing one drummer to play them all. The musician usually has drumsticks in each hand, and uses their feet to operate pedals that control the hi-hat cymbal and the bass drum. You will find the drums in almost all rock, pop, and jazz music.

Parents take note: you can purchase entirely electric drum kits, which include headphones. You’re welcome.

Best age to start: 5 and up

 

Other Percussion Instruments

The percussion section of any orchestra is incredibly important. Some percussion instruments have pitch and can play different notes, like the xylophone, timpani, and marimba. Other common percussion instruments include cymbals, triangle, snare drum, bass drum, tambourine, maracas, gongs, chimes, and claves.

Best age to start: 8 and up
