Classroom Rhythm Instruments
In the classroom there is no better way to encourage students to understand and appreciate music and the importance of collaboration than to hand them a bunch of rhythm instruments. Researchers believe that playing music at a young age is enormously beneficial for their development. One of the best music product areas for young learners is percussion. With a drum, if you hit it you get a result, whereas brass and woodwind instruments offer far less instant gratification. CP, or Cosmic Percussion, is a leading manufacturer of affordable, good quality tambourines, bongos, congas, maracas, guiros and other hand percussion instruments.
Latin Percussion is among the premier brands of Latin percussion instruments. Their products are played by some of the greatest percussionists in the world, but they additionally have as part of their line a series of hand percussion instruments that are perfect for classroom including egg shakers, animal shakers, whistles, claves, woodblocks and many other wonderful noisemakers. It sounds like a list from a Dr. Seuss book: ratchets, bells, kazoos, slide whistles, chimes, claves, castanets, and yes, nose flutes! Trophy is a manufacturer of solid quality, inexpensive musical instruments that do not require years of dedication to produce a satisfying sound. Trophy offers these instruments individually or in larger packs of rhythm sets that can supply the entire classroom.
For many decades, indeed, many centuries and even millennia, drumheads were made chiefly from animal skins.

Tambourines, jingle bells, rhythm sticks and triangle kits are available from Remo at an incredible price, making a child’s association with music fun and affordable. Meinl instruments are often in the hands of professional drummers and percussionists, but they are also often in the clutches of tiny fingers.

They produce congas and bongos in a wide variety of price ranges that are appropriate from the student to the professional. They are well-made, attractively priced and built to last.
