Percussion History - The Drums Of Time

Percussion drums are probably one of the oldest musical instruments out there. Humans have been using them to accompany dances and rituals.

The real ancestors of percussion instruments were ...

robably made of hollow trees and animal hide.

Today, however, much has changed and percussions have become inextricable parts of any musical composition.

A Look At The Perscussions' Past

The kettledrum instrument is probably the father of modern day percussions. The kettledrum arrived in Europe between the 12th and 13th century and was used to add bass to the treble of trumpet instruments. It became recognized as a true musical instrument when it became a serious component in the compositions of Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Berlioz.

In the mid-19th century, percussions became a major part of the orchestra. By the 20th century, they developed a higher role in creating the actual rhythms of musical scores and were no longer confined to just being fancy accents in an orchestral piece.

The birth of jazz introduced a different system of percussions playing with a solo musician playing drums and cymbals of various timbres at the same time. This empowered percussionists into developing styles of music that now focused on bass more than anything else.

And with the advent of rock, percussion drum were no longer at the sidelines of rhythm, but rather directly at the center of it.

For centuries, percussion has continued to grow in complexity and importance. Entire industries have flourished with its ascension, and so have musicians who embraced it.
