What are musical instruments?

We can basically define musical instruments as those objects that can be used by man to produce sounds in order to create music. It is believed that the first musical manifestations were made by singing and playing different materials such as stones or logs to accompany dance. However, we soon learned to use wind, string and percussion instruments. Musical instruments of these three types have been found in archaeological excavations around all the major ancient cultures. This helps us to understand a little of the vital importance that music has had for us since the beginning of history. If you are interested in learning to play a new instrument, a good place to start is with these free music courses.

Musical instruments are systems that consist of an oscillator and, in many cases, a resonator. In stringed instruments, for example, the string is the oscillator and the case is the resonator. On the other hand, all musical instruments have their own characteristics, but they share some essential ones in common: the tonal and dynamic aspects.

When we talk about tonal we refer to pitch or pitch. Pitch is the speed of vibration that impresses the ear. The higher the frequency, the higher the pitch of the sound. The dynamic aspect of musical instruments indicates the level of intensity, i.e. how far away a sound can be heard or how loud it sounds.

Classification of musical instruments

Musical instruments have been classified in different ways throughout history. In 1914, for example, Curt Sachs and Erich Hornbostel divided instruments according to their physical properties (idiophones, membranophones, aerophones, chordophones and electrophones). However, the most widely used and well-known classification divides them into stringed, wind, percussion and electric instruments:

Stringed Instruments

They produce the sounds thanks to the vibrations of the strings and the amplification achieved by the soundboard. These musical instruments can be further separated into three different groups according to playing techniques: plucked, plucked and plucked stringed instruments:

  • Stringed instruments: violin, viola, violoncello.
  • Plucked or plucked string instruments: harp, bass, guitar, banjo, ukulele.
  • Strummed string instruments: piano, clavichord.

Percussion instruments

Percussion instruments:sound when struck, like drums. They are probably the oldest musical instruments ever used by man. These are further divided into determinate and indeterminate-sounding percussion instruments:

Undetermined percussion instruments:

  • Membranes: military drum, tambourine.
  • Metal: Triangle, cymbals.
  • Wood: castanets, maracas.

Percussion instruments with a specific sound:

Xylophone, kettledrum, tubular bells, etc.

Wind instruments

Wind instruments They produce sound through the vibration of the wind and air inside them. They can be further divided into:

Human-powered wind instruments:

  • Wood: flute, piccolo (embouchure), fafot, oboe (double), clarinet, saxophone (single).
  • Metal: trumpet, trombone, tuba, cornet, etc.

Mechanical wind instruments:

Harmonium, accordion, classical organ.

INSTRUMENTOS-electricos

Electric instruments

These refer to electronic instruments created from the 20th century onwards, such as the electronic organ, synthesizers, drum machines, etc..
