This trio of Xylophones has been designed exclusively for MES and is manufactured to a very high standard which rivals that of the more well known brands such as Sonor and Studio 49.
We've listened to your feedback, and with help from Music Teachers and Advisors, we are able to offer you the quality and durability that you require from instruments that need to not only sound good, but need to last.
With solid hardwood frames and rosewood keys, all our Diatonic Xylophones come with 2 F# keys and 1 Bb key ( stored on the side of the frame) for more verstility when playing different key signatures, and there's also the option to purchase the Chromatic add-on sections for the Soprano and Alto Xylophones separately should you wish to. A pair of beaters for each instrument is also included in the price.
Included in the set are
1 x Soprano Diatonic Xylophone - 16 Bars ,C4-A5 with 2 F#s, Bb and 1 x pair of beaters.
1 x Alto Diatonic Xylophone - 16 Bars, C3-A4, with 2 F#s, Bb and 1 x pair of beaters.
1 x Bass Diatonic Xylophone - 16 Bars, C1 -A2, with 2 F#s, Bb and 1 x pair of beaters
Introduce your class to the three different sized instruments, and let them compare the differences in sound.
Create layered compositions with bass and melody parts for children learning about structure, melody and different parts in music.
Let the children listen to pieces of music which feature the Xylophone for inspiration. A good example is 'Danse Macabre' by Saint-Saens. Tell the children the story that the piece tells...and ask them to tell you if they can hear the skeletons dancing! Use this as a starting point for the children to creat their own 'Tone Poem' compositions.
Look at YouTube for videos of percussionists performing, especially the amazing Dame Evelyn Glennie, who hasn't been able to hear since the age of 12, yet is a world Class musician. You'll find recordings by the great Patrick Moore on there too.
