Oklahoma State Percussive Musical Instrument

Drum

Drum

Adopted on September 1, 1993.

Musical instruments and their users were not neglected: the fiddle became the official musical instrument in 1984, and the drum became the percussion instrument on September 1, 1993.

Percussion instruments are music instruments played by being struck, shaken, rubbed or scraped, hence the "percussive" name. They are perhaps the oldest form of musical instruments, rivaled only by vocal. Percussion instruments play not only rhythm, but also melody and harmony, and percussion could also be the only category of instruments that has musical notation in all three of the traditional clefs .

Oklahoma State Percussive Musical Instrument : Drum

Drum

A drum is a musical instrument in the percussion family , technically classified as a membranophone. Drums consist of at least one membrane, called a drumhead or drumskin, that is stretched over a shell and struck, either directly with parts of a player's body, or with some sort of implement such as a drumstick, to produce sound. Drums are among the world's oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments, and the basic design has been virtually unchanged for hundreds of years.
