Percussion Musical Instruments for Children
Maracas, shakers, rainmakers, rainsticks, rattle are the simplest musical aids in childhood. These instruments make rhythm, the rhythm is the first and main component in any melody.
The famous pedagog Carl Orff believed that each child should not be a passive listener, but an active co-creator. He (she) must have the opportunity to act and dance to accompany a composition and improvise while listening to or learning to play music.
With our percussion instruments, you can be your kids' Orrf music instructor, who encourages a child's natural sense of music, even if they have never played music before.
Not only can you and your kids play using a percussion instrument musical set, but also with any other musical sounds you can come up with. You can easily change the musical instruments for adding different sounds or creating new activities when playing with your child. Our paperback with percussion games illustrates how any simple story or fairy tale can be accompanied by musical activity.
Kid's percussion instruments develop children's creative imagination and introduce skills for playing music. Children learn to adjust the volume and strength of sounds, enhance their listening skills, and develop their gross and fine motor skills. If several children are playing, they learn to wait their turn and develop patience. While reading the fairy tale, all musical instruments should be easily accessible (i.e., layout in front of or around the kids). For the first time, an adult should read the story and play the instrument by themself, with the kids only listening. Later, if the child is small, you can divide the instruments, giving kids only some of them for musical scoring. Later, the kids can play all the instruments, and even recite the whole fairy tale and score themselves. Encourage the kids if they suggest their own method of scoring or their own plot of the fairy tale.
