Some have a pitch, and some do not have pitch. Xylophone, timpani and chimes are examples of pitched percussion instruments, while bass drum, snare drum, triangle, cymbals, and tambourine are non-pitched percussion instruments.

  2. String instruments make up the largest section of the orchestra. They consist of the violin, viola, cello, and double bass. They all have the same basic shape, but are very different in size. They each have four strings, are made of wood, and are played by drawing a bow across the strings or plucking the strings with the fingers. String instruments also come in smaller sizes so children can learn to play them. Woodwind instruments are most commonly made of wood or metal. They are played by blowing air across an opening at one end or through a "reed", and by covering and uncovering holes along the instrument with fingers or levers, keys, and pads. The members of this family are flute, oboe, clarinet and bassoon.
