About Xylophones

The Xylophone is thought to originate in Asia or Africa as early as 500 AD. Because of their popularity in classrooms, the xylophone is often mistakenly believed to be purely an instrument for children.

In the hands of a skilled player however, the xylophone is a complex and impressive instrument playing a huge role in many modern orchestras and film scores.
