A comprehensive survey  that explores many facets of percussion in music therapy training and music therapy practice has been completed, and results are being compiled for a manuscript.   One of the areas examined within the survey was instrumentation.

According to the survey results can see a prevalence of world, auxiliary, and accessible percussion instruments (body percussion, paddle drums) in the “front-runners.”  This is consistent with our previous, more informal surveys, and also with literature reviews.

What instruments you use, and how often?   Anything unique with a particular purpose?  Something that you’ve found to be indispensable within your practice?   Feel free to comment below.
