Pitched vs non pitched
Pitched vs. Non-Pitched

  • Pitched percussion are any kind of instrument you can play a melody on. A pitched percussion instrument plays different notes

  • Non-pitched percussion can only play different rhythms. You can’t play a melody on these instruments

  • Both are important to the orchestra because they either solidify the melody or add interest

  • All percussion instruments make sounds are made from hitting, striking, rubbing, or shaking. As long as vibration is created it will make sound
