History of Tambourine Dancing

Tambourine has been played and used long time ago and what the Bible stated was that Miriam used it to dance for joy and in victory. In Exodus 15:21 it says “Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines and dancing.”

A Tambourine is a wonderful weapon of Praise. It is also a way of wagging off bad spirit in the congregation and encourages the people of God to worship. Tambourine is also a musical instrument that has been used for so many generations. What I can say is that we must give back to God this wonderful instrument to praise Him alone.

Different Types of Tambourines

We do have different types of Tambourines. We have the single row jingles with membrane, double row jingles with membrane, single and double row jingles without membranes. It also comes in different sizes and shapes. But the most important thing is that when you consider Tambourine Dancing before the Lord Jesus Christ, most tambourines used are with the membranes of course, be it single or double row jingles.

The membrane is a part of the tambourine that you strike with your palms. It is made out of goat’s skin or calf skin for most local manufacturers of tambourines and some membranes are made out of durable plastics like they used in drum sets.

The jingle is the one made out of nickel plated or steel ones that makes a clanging sound. I do hope that you are now familiar with tambourine. I will also discuss how to properly hold the Tambourine. Below are just sample images for of the different types of tambourines. You can also search it online to see other samples if you like.
