Instrumental Music – The Old Contender In The Modern Music World

Music exists in many forms and one amongst them is Instrumental Music. Almost every music is composed of lyrics and music produced by musical instruments. But in this case, no lyrics are found and purely music is produced. Although vocals are used sometimes they are not to be considered as lyrics because they are just like sounds produced by the musical instruments.

This is one of the oldest forms of music which is invented around the 1500s. This music was first composed by the English men using only vocals. Later they used few naturally existing instruments for producing the music.

Types of Instruments used for Instrumental Music

In the initial days, instruments were made with naturally available sources such as animals skin, horns, bamboo. Earlier to this, the human body parts such as hands (Clapping), vocals are used for producing music. The various kinds of  Instrumental Music are

  • Percussion Instruments: These instruments are those which produce sound by striking or by tapping them.
  • Woodwind Instruments: These instruments are operated with air. They consist of a mouthpiece that vibrates to generate sound when air is blown.
