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?

Benjamin : It is quite easy, Sir! The examples of aerophones are flutes, trumpet, saxophone, and trombone.
