Did you know that the xylophone is a percussion instrument? You read it right! Xylophone is a percussion instrument made up of wooden sticks struck with mallets. Like the globoardspiel, it’s basically a series of tuned keys arranged in the manner of a piano keyboard. Each bar is an idiom tuned to musical pitch, whether pentatonic or aptatonic in the case of many African and Asian instruments, diatonic in the case of many Western children’s instruments, or diatonic in the case of many Western children’s instruments. color in the case of orchestral instruments.
Now it’s your turn to learn how to draw Xylophone in 8 easy steps! Just follow this step-by-step guide.
Please see the drawing tutorial in the video below
You can refer to the simple step-by-step drawing guide below
Step 1: Draw the frame
Let’s start your xylophone by drawing the frame. From the top left of the paper, draw a downward diagonal line and another diagonal line on the right side of the paper. These two diagonals will form a wide space at the top and gradually the space will thin until it reaches the bottom.
Then draw two lines to enclose the diagonal lines you outlined earlier. Inside the canvas draw two diagonal lines, 1 inch apart. Make sure the two inner diagonals will have a slight overlap of the upper and lower frames.
Step 2: Draw the tone bar
To make those lines more visible, add another diagonal line inside the frame. Then connect the two diagonals with a short curved line. You can check the given image in step 2. Draw 8 sound bars inside it. These sound bars look like short and long rectangles. Make sure that the distance between each sound bar is observed.

Step 3: Remove the extra lines
To accentuate your soundbar, erase some extra lines in your drawing. Delete those lines inside the soundbar. With that, we can now clearly see our sound in the xylophone. Again, only erase the lines inside the sound bars.
Step 4: Add details, Add more details
Now add details to your drawing. On both sides of the sound bar, draw a short diagonal line. Start drawing diagonal lines, from the inside edge of the small sound bar going down. Then do it on the 2nd bar until you finish the 8th or last.
Now, you are almost done! In this step you just add the details to the xylophone. On both sides of the sound bar, draw medium sized circles. Start drawing it from the small sound bar up to the bigger one. You can use coins to make your circle perfect and nice.
Step 5: Remove extra lines
In this step, you only need to erase and clean the excess lines for a clearer drawing. Erase the line that frames your drawing in step 1. Do not include the short diagonal line you drew in step 4. Then, below the xylophone, draw two horizontal lines.
Step 6: Draw the mallets
The next thing that we need to do is draw the mallets. The mallets are sometimes made of hard rubber or plastic materials with a stick. Now let’s draw a small circle on each stick. Draw it on the left side of the line.
Step 7: Add more details
This time, add more detail to your mallet. Draw another horizontal line next to each stick you drew earlier. Then connect the two horizontal lines with a short curved line. This will make your club compartment thicker.
Step 8: Finish!
The best part of this tutorial is the coloring task. We can have as many colors as we want because some xylophones are made colorful. We’re done with our drawing tutorial. Hope you enjoy discovering new things. Good job and congratulations to the little ones.
