Percussion (パーカッション Pākasshon) is a family of instruments that produce sound by being struck, shaken, or scraped. A musician who plays percussion instruments is called a percussionist or simply a percussion player.

Instruments[]

Percussion instruments are most commonly divided into two classes: Pitched percussion, which produce notes with an identifiable pitch, and unpitched percussion, which produce notes or sounds without an identifiable pitch.

Trivia[]

  • The percussion family is believed to include the oldest musical instruments, following the human voice.
  • Percussionists are required to play multiple instruments in the orchestra or band, unlike other players who are limited to one instrument each. Being a percussionist is a highly respected job and is in charge of providing guidance and timing to the rest of the band. Hence, without percussion, the band is unable to function well.
