Orchestral percussion are percussion instruments used in orchestras
mainly in classical music and related styles. The term can also
refer to the department or study of performance on said instruments
at a music school or conservatory. Generally within such a
department, students are required to study all aspects of
orchestral playing; with marimba, snare drum, and timpani being the
three most basic areas of study. Orchestral percussion usually does
not include drum set studies. Percussion is arguably the most
versatile of any instrument family in that it can be used in
practically every genre or style of music. In an orchestral
setting, percussionists are generally called on to provide
different textures in the ensemble.
