Percussion 101: How to Play Shakers and Maracas

Image
All percussion players will have to play some type of shaker regardless of the music setting. Whether you are playing in a salsa band, an orchestra, or in the front ensemble of a drum and bugle corps, you will encounter various types of shakers from a variety of different parts of the world.

Shakers are simply percussion instruments that create sound primarily by shaking them, thus the obvious name. However, there are dozens of types of shakers. Some, like the tambourine, are classified separately because of the more advanced percussion techniques required to perform on them.

The most common shaker is the maraca, a percussion instrument of Latin American origin. This shaker is often filled with rocks, beads, shells, or seeds, and the maraca may be made out of natural materials like a gourd or wood or can be made out of manufactured plastic. The maraca is most often played by holding the handle and moving the instrument up and down, causing the beads to knock against each other and the…

Protect Your Hands
Tape, strap pads, and gloves are often used to protect the cymbal player's hands from blisters and the slow grinding away of skin during a lengthy band show.
In the orchestra setting, where the crash cymbal is often reserved for music accents and shorter music passages, the percussion player does not loop their hands in the strap, and inste…

Percussion Instruments 101: How to Play the Concert TriangleThere are literally hundreds of concert percussion instruments in use every day throughout the world. Whether you are playing percussion in a drum circle in Ghana, a jazz band in New Orleans, or a symphony orchestra in Sweden, you are playing an instrument that has traveled and mutated throughout the globe.

The percussion instrument the triangle, is a metal rod bent into the shape of a two dimensional geometric triangle with one of the bottom corners disconnected to allow sound waves to escape. The concert triangle often has a slight difference, in that it may have a hole in one corner to loop a piece of nylon to hang the concert triangle. If it is an Alan Abel triangle, it will have a slight difference in the open end. That angle will end in a different thickness, supposedly to help the triangle sound to escape better acoustically. The triangle may be struck near one of the closed angles or may be struck in the middle of the…
