So many instruments, so much fun. While it has the advantage of being a set of instruments that you can immediately get sounds out of, learning more and more instruments with proper technique from different countries can set you on a path of lifetime learning. The excitement of a Percussion solo, and the way it compels an audience to dance, are often strong calling cards for this group of instruments. Just remember you’ll probably never be able to drive a sports car to your concert, unless you’ve got someone else bringing your instruments.
