Instruments Galore!

Children love to play instruments and create their own sound. Introducing your child to a wide variety of sound textures via the many types of instruments readily available, increases their aural development and awareness. They become keen listeners and learners.

The next stage is to encourage and teach children to use the instruments in a meaningful and creative way to follow the beat or rhythm of music they can play along with. Tuned and untuned percussion instruments are a perfect introduction for little ones to begin experimenting with, giving them an opportunity to actively participate in their musical education.

Once an appreciation and understanding that music is creative expression has been developed and nurtured in your child, they will be excited to explore more advanced instruments such as violins, guitars, ukuleles, flutes, trumpets, etc. Here is a range of instruments to inspire any age group.
