Learn to Play the Tambourine



The tambourine is a percussion instrument whose origin can be traced back as far as classical Greece. Traditionally, the instrument consisted of a circular wooden frame covered with a membrane (or "head") and surrounded by pairs of small metal plates called "zils." Modern versions of the tambourine, however, often appear without a membrane, with plastic frames, and in half-moon instead of circular shapes. The tambourine can be played in a number of different musical settings, from orchestral and world folk music to modern rock and pop. The methods used to play a tambourine are fairly similar between applications.
