What makes the Xylophone a great musical instrument?


school music classes

These instruments are great for developing music skills in youngsters. In fact, they are often a staple in elementary school music classes. One of the main benefits of xylophones In an educational setting is that children will develop fine motor skills as they begin to learn and then feel comfortable with using mallets.

Teaching children scales and octaves is another of the many advantages of xylophones. Getting the right grip and developing proper playing techniques form the foundation of using the instruments.

Through experimentation, children will strike the keys with their mallets and find various levels of volume and different types of rhythm. With regular playing and more experience, youngsters develop their own musical sense.

Types of Xylophones


Thailand wooden xylophone

What type of xylophone or glockenspiel to buy and how much a xylophone costs depends on the type of instrument, the age of the player, and the level at which they play. Factors to be considered include the frame, the material, and the range (the number of octaves). If you want a portable xylophone, the instrument will have a smaller frame. Rosewood usually produces the best sound, but for outdoor play, a synthetic material may be preferable. For beginners, a single octave instrument may be enough, while a professional quality xylophone typically has three and a half octaves. InTemenos offers both glockenspiels and xylophones for school and for home. Remember xylophones and glockenspiels are not the same -- xylophones have wooden bars/keys and glockenspiels have metal ones.

  • Choose from two types - diatonic (one row corresponding to white keys on a piano) or chromatic (two rows corresponding to white and black keys on a piano)
