Sound is produced on these instruments when a physical strike is delivered to the object.
Sometimes a stick or mallet is used (drums, timpani, or xylophone); shaken (tambourine); snapped(castanets); struck against
itself (cymbals); or rattled (sleigh bells).
Percussionists are required to make large physical movements to operate the devices, this also lends an aura of fascination
as well as authority to their acts.
