T.P. Blog- Lesson 5- Toys in the Orchestral Percussion Section

Today, we discuss some accessories in the orchestral percussion section, specifically: finger cymbals, triangle, and castanets. There are many different techniques to play these instruments, and I am going to detail the ones that work for me.
