Learning to play the tambourine may seem like a daunting task, but it’s not! It’s absolutely a ton of fun and you’ll find you’re playing in no time. Remember, it is an instrument and will need you to practise, but it’s so much fun you’ll WANT to practise!

Below is a quick guide to get you started. It’s probably a good idea to have a brief (yes, a quick glance) over the {PREP} and {THEORY} sections. But just a quick look and then come back to it after you’re loving the steps and movements you’re learning!

Hopefully you’ll have a tambourine, but if you don’t, then no need to despair – you can use a plastic plate or a piece of cardboard until your tambourine arrives.
