The keyboard is a musical instrument that produces music by pressing a series of keys. It can be used to play a melody or create chords and bass lines. It can be played by itself or connected to a computer, other electronic instruments, or a human performer.
There are many different types of keyboards. They range from very basic MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) controllers to highly advanced workstations. They also come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
One of the more unique keyboards is a celeste, which works similarly to a piano but without strings. The hammers of the celeste hit sound plates directly above wooden resonators to produce a bell tone. This type of instrument is often used in movies and dramas to provide sound effects.
Another type of keyboard is an arranger, which is used by professionals to help in composing music. These are usually expensive and have an integrated mini-computer that helps in customizing various audio features needed by professional keyboard players.
In modern music, keyboards are heavily used to produce synthesized music that can be recorded and edited by a computer. This process is facilitated by midi capabilities, which make it easy for musicians to communicate with other devices through their keyboards.

Percussion is any type of instrument that makes a sound when it is struck or scraped. It is the most common category of musical instruments, and it is often the backbone of a band or orchestra.
Various types of percussion instruments make different sounds and can be used in many different ways. They are important for rhythm and variety in music.
One of the most well-known types of percussion is the snare drum, which adds a deep, thudding sound to many songs. Other popular percussion instruments include the tom-tom and bass drum.
Another popular type of percussion is the timpani, which look like large copper bowls or upside-down tea kettles. They are tunable, meaning they can play different notes by tightening or loosening the drumheads attached to a foot pedal. The size of the timpani also affects its pitch and sound.
Timpani are one of the most common percussion instruments and are used in orchestras worldwide. The instrument is usually played by a single musician who uses a felt-tipped mallet or wooden stick to strike the drumheads.
Other percussion instruments include the bongo, which is a stringed instrument that can produce a mellow, smooth sound. The djembe is a type of African percussion that produces a spirited, rhythmic sound.
There are also a number of other types of percussion instruments that make sound by hitting a metal rod with a wooden stick or other object. Some of these instruments are not played much anymore, but they still have a special place in some cultures.
Another percussion instrument that can produce a special sound is the triangle. This instrument is often overlooked, but it can add a very delicate accent to a musical piece. The triangle is made of a metal rod that is bent into the shape of a triangle and suspended by a small string from the top. The angle of the rod can vary, as can the thickness of the metal and the material of the stick that strikes the triangle.
Woodwinds are a group of wind instruments that are made of wood or metal and include flutes, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, and saxophones. They are used in orchestral music, as well as in band and chamber music.
They make sounds by blowing air into or across the mouthpiece, which is usually made of a thin piece of wood called a reed. The reeds in these instruments vary from single to double, but the most common are a single reed for the flute and clarinet and a double reed for the oboe and bassoon.
The pitch of these instruments is affected by the speed of the air and the length of the tube they’re played in, which can result in a higher or lower pitch sound. The shorter the instrument, the higher the pitch and the longer the instrument, the lower the pitch.
These instruments are traditionally made of wood, but they can also be built from brass or other metals. Some modern flutes are made from a combination of wood and metal, as are some clarinets and saxophones.
There are two main types of woodwinds: open flutes, which have a hole in the side of a cylinder, and closed flutes, which have a hole near the top of the cylinder. Flute runs are often used in orchestral music, and the smaller woodwinds are useful for rhythmic staccato notes.
The clarinet family is the largest of the woodwinds and includes a variety of different single reed instruments. These include the piccolo, which is a small, or half-size, flute; English horn; and clarinets, E-flat clarinets, and bass clarinets. Oboes are the highest-pitched woodwinds, and they feature in jazz and classical music.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, sometimes with additional elements such as tin. It is a common choice for musical instruments because it is strong and durable, possesses excellent acoustic qualities and is easily worked by metal workers.
It also has corrosion resistance, low friction and is easy to shape in a variety of ways. Besides being used in music, brass is also common for locks, hinges, valves, zippers and other devices that require corrosion resistance.
A hardness test, such as the Brinell hardness scale, can be used to measure the material’s toughness and resistance to damage. Bronze scores between 40 and 420 on this scale, while brass scores between 55 and 73.
The high malleability of brass and its acoustic properties have made it the standard choice for construction of a number of musical instruments, including trombones, tubas, trumpets, cornets, flugelhorns, baritone horns, euphoniums, tenor horns and French horns. The saxophone, harmonica and several free-reed aerophones are often constructed of brass as well.
Another advantage of brass is its high resistance to corrosion, especially under water. Unlike bronze, which reacts with salt water to produce porous copper, marine brass can be protected against this by adding tin or other anti-corrosion agents.
Brass has a low melting point of around 1,650 degrees Fahrenheit, making it easier to work than bronze and harder than iron. In addition, it has a higher malleability than either bronze or iron, so it can be formed into new shapes more easily.
The strings of musical instruments are what make the sound and notes that musicians play. Musicians use bows or picks to rub the strings against, or strike them against, to make the sound. They can also pluck the strings to change the length of the string. The length and weight of the strings affect how they sound. For example, long strings vibrate slower and make lower sounding notes than short strings. Similarly, thin and light strings produce higher notes than thick and heavy strings. This is why different instruments are made with different types of strings to allow the musician to produce a variety of sounds on the instrument.
