Making a noise about

Children love the real hands-on experience of learning rhythm and sound. It enables them to express their feelings and communicate with one another.

These activities encourage children to express their musical skills, and develop co-ordination as they practice beats and keep rhythm with each other. Our Music Play items are often coupled together to form an interactive and inspiring music zone, but can easily be added to an existing play area as a creative extra.

“What was a dust bowl in the summer and a mud pit in the winter now looks like a show garden that is getting used on a daily basis.”

Playing with the beat

Children of all abilities and ages can join in together with outdoor musical activities. A wide range of traditional musical play instruments such as xylophones, bongos and chimes can be augmented by rain wheels, tongue drums and bell trees.

In fact, think back to one of the first ways you used music to memorise information… most likely the ABC Song. Using a simple tune, you were able to remember 26 different letters in order! In the same way other musical mnemonics include learning the days of the week, a telephone number, or the states and capitals through song melodies or chants.

There are no rules for musical improvisation, the focus is on creativity and expression. With this is mind there are no instruments as easy to learn as ours, yet they’re capable of making some very complex and beautiful music.
