A solid rhythm section is an important part of any piece of music or band. Think of the maracas in "Jumping Jack Flash" by The Rolling Stones, or the tambourine in "You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’", by The Righteous Brothers as examples. Because percussion is so integral to the sound of a piece, it is vital that you choose the right option.
As a teacher, you may want tambourines or shakers to help your students develop their sensitivity to rhythm in a fun, communal way, or you may wish to add shakers or sleigh bells to a recorded piece. Likewise, you may want handheld triangles for your school band’s performances. At West Music, we have a variety of percussion instruments, including tambourines, shakers, triangles, or even musical washboards. We stock reputable brands such as Remo, Sonor, Basic Beat, and Per Del.
