The family of my instrument is the percussion family. It is in the percussion family because you hit it. The name of my instrument is the Decorcandrums because there are cans that are decorated and it is a set of drums.

When each tin or can is hit you hear different kinds of sounds.

I made this by gathering cans and tins at my house. I wrapped paper around the cans and tins and used markers and beads to make music symbols.

After you decorate the cans and tins and glued them all together you are ready to play. Have fun making new sounds!
