Bells can add a merry sound to any ensemble. For young musicians in particular, they are fun to play due to ease of learning and availability in different colors and unique shapes. Bells are also an integral part of the percussion section used in music from holiday tunes to classic marches.
There is a variety of percussion bells available. Some like sleigh bells have an instantly recognizable sound and are typically associated with the particular holiday genre. Others like the cowbells are not rung, but struck and noticed staples of rock and roll music. Bell use is prevalent in music all around the world, and in different classroom settings. For example, agogo bells and gankogui bells have roots with Africa. These unique instruments produce two distinct tones after striking with sticks.
