Information or Use Cases (Usage examples)

At the music class.

Mr. Oliver: Well, today we will discuss about musical instruments. There are some classification of musical instruments.

Noah : What are they, Sir?

Mr. Oliver: Good question. They are Idiophones, Membranophones, Chordophones, and Aerophones. Idiophones is produced by the body of the instrument vibrating, rather than a string, membrane, or column of air. Can anyone give some examples of idiophones?

Liam : Piano, cymbals, maracas, and cabasa.

Mr. Oliver: You’ve got it right. Okay. Next, it is membranophones. The sound is produced by the body of the instrument vibrating, rather than a string, membrane, or column of air. Anybody can mention the examples?

Elijah : They are drums, bongos, and djembe. Is it right, Sir?

Mr. Oliver:You are really working hard today. You got it well. Now, How about Chordophones? The Sound is produced by the vibration of a string or strings that are stretched between fixed points.

Sylvia: So, are they like violins, cello, acoustic guitar, and banjo?

Mr. Oliver: yes, they are. You are good at it. Okay, The last one is aerophones. The sound is produced by vibrating air. Benjamin, do you know what are the examples of aerophones?
