The Glockenspiel ( from the German Glocken : bells and Spiel : play) is the perfect starting point for children to learn about the fundamentals of making music, both individually and in groups.
By playing the Glockenspiel, Children will learn that music is creative, fun and exciting - and is an experience that can be shared with classmates. Its ringing, bell-like sound is easy on the ears and , when played with the two beaters provided, your young musicians can begin to learn the basics of musical harmony, pitch and notation.
The 25 notes enable a wide range of music to be played, in different keys, so is an ideal accompaniment for your assemblies and concerts. Why not let the children play simple chords along to favourite songs?...as they become more confident, see if they can pick out a well known tune 'by ear' and let the rest of the group 'name that tune'!
This model, with its black and white bars, coloured to reflect the keys of the piano, is ideal for older children who may have more experience in reading notation and need that extra challenge to play music in more complex keys which contain sharps, flats and naturals. Students who already have some experience playing the piano or keyboard will find they can transition easily between instruments, and the bars can be easily removed, should you need to.
Stored in a well made, highly durable wooden box with brass hinges and locks this Glockenspiel is easily transported and saves storage space. The lid ,when opened, can serve as a convenient rest for sheets of music and there's room inside for the two beaters.
