Percussion is a unique group of instruments that is neither a brass or woodwind instrument. According to Wikipedia, a percussion instrument is any object which produces a sound by being hit with an implement, shaken, rubbed, scraped, or by any other action which sets the object into vibration, usually used in a rhythmic context. There are many types of percussion instruments, and it’s hard to list all types. However, many videos are posted below that explain different types of percussion instruments and show how to play them.
