The tambourine has a long, rich history that has roots in a wide variety of musical genres. From classical, folk, or rock, tambourines are simplistic yet versatile instruments that can really bring a song to life. Though an ancient instrument, its structure has largely remained unchanged. In Europe, they are played with both folk and art music, for example in compositions by Mozart. It was used to suggest an exotic or eastern flavor to a western audience, as in Tchaikovsky’s Arabian Dance from the famous Nutcracker Suit.
IQ Plus tambourines are designed to be easily played by children. To achieve the desired sound, all they need to do is shake, bang, or rattle the tambourine. This instrument is also a highly useful tool used by teachers to instruct students on rhythms and beats. Children can play along with the songs they already know or bring in additional percussion instruments to form a band. Tambourines can be played to accompany performances such as a school dance.
IQ Plus offers tambourines made from environmentally-friendly rubber wood in a variety of sizes and shapes, featuring bright-sounding steel jingles.
