Traditionally formed as part of percussion accompaniment, castanets adapt to various styles of traditional music. When held in the hands and shaken, castanets produce a series of rapid clicks as a complement to music played in small ensembles. Being handheld and affordable, they are the perfect fun and affordable beginners percussion instrument, and ideal for communal music lessons when teaching students to interact with the rhythm of a piece of music.
If you want to introduce your children or your students to music and rhythm while developing learning through the senses, we have a range of castanets to use in your teaching sessions. All of these products are of high quality and affordable. At West Music, our castanets are available in traditional-style wooden versions, and plastic shapes such as fish and beetroot to engage your student’s sense of fun as well as their musical ear!
