Create a musical scale with your feet and hands! These 8 brightly coloured ,robust pads can be used indoors or outdoors to make learning notation fun!
Watch as children step on the pads or press with their hands and see the amazement and joy on their faces as they make their first true musical sound. Each pad plays a different note and all 8 span a complete octave from C to C.
These beautiful, yet simple dense foam pads use Suzuki's 'reed technology' - where pressure on the playing surface activates small bellows inside the pad which play a reed.
Each pad is responsive to varying pressure, so why not ask each child to find out what happens if they press with one finger, thump with their fist, stamp with a foot...or jump with both feet. Discuss why some sound loud and some sound quiet.
Try playing a song on the pads. Set them out in a straight line or a circle and use the colours as notation. All 8 pads have the stave and note printed on them to help you, and to make playing more challenging for older children who have already learned to read some music.
