How To Hold The Tambourine Properly

Step 1: Use the middle finger and your thumb to hold the tambourine as you place it on the hole. This is the best grip that you can have and is the safest way to hold your tambourine.

Step 2: Make sure that your thumb was shown on the membrane of the tambourine as the middle finger was enclosed at the tambourine’s hole.

Step 3: We only use our right hand for holding the tambourine as a sign of unity and uniformity in the group. If you are left handed, I don’t see anything that will hinder you using your left hand, however, most of the patterns that I will show here will be a right hand holding a tambourine and you might get confused.

Step 4: The tambourine that I am talking about here is only a tambourine with membrane used for tambourine dancing and not the percussion instrument which is mostly without membranes.

Now this is only for holding the tambourine. As we know that when we held a tambourine in our hand, we can play it in numerous ways from shaking the jingles to striking it using our palm. So before you can start, you should know some basic tambourine taps in order to get along with the tutorials that I will be posting soon.
