A clarinet has a single reed. It is an instrument which has developed over time and as a result there are various designs and fingerings. A ‘cello is smaller than a double bass and the player is seated. It is not an instrument to play in a confined space.
A cornet may contain an ice cream, but it is also a (brass) musical instrument similar to a trumpet. Cymbals clash, castanets clack, while a clavichord is probably in a museum! It is a precursor of the modern piano.
My introduction to music at primary school included using various percussion instruments. I found it difficult to understand that cymbals had to be slid against each other from top to bottom rather than hit together in a sort of head-on collision.
A cajon is a box-like drum, which the player sits on. The j is pronounced in the Spanish way.
Choirs make music as well – or in some cases, not quite so well! Do you sing in a choir?
