With the help of this lesson, you will learn how to draw a xylophone. This is a very simple creative task that any beginner can do.
I suggest you complete a wonderful lesson on musical instruments, and now I will show you in detail how to draw a xylophone step by step. This is a percussion musical instrument, which consists of a number of wooden records.
The plates have different sizes and are tuned to different notes. The plates are struck with sticks with round tips or special hammers. The sound depends on what material the tips are made of.
If you use rubber sticks, the sound will be soft and quiet, if you use sticks with plastic heads, you can get a sharp and loud sound.
The xylophone is considered one of the most ancient musical instruments. The construction of the xylophone is very simple, and therefore this instrument was often used by itinerant musicians.
