Sound in Music
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     There are many, many ways in which sound affects our lives, but one of the very best is music.
 
2     One definition of music is sound arranged into interesting and pleasing patterns. Musical instruments each have their own way of arranging sound into patterns.
 
3     Percussion instruments produce vibrations from a tight membrane that is stretched over the top of the drum. When the membrane is hit with drumsticks or hands, a vibration begins which produces the sound. This is how snare drums, kettledrums, and bongo drums produce their sound. There are also percussion instruments made of metal that produce sounds when they are hit. Some of these are chimes, xylophones, cymbals, and triangles.
