“ Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart ” – Pablo Casals
The sounds and vibrations of beautiful music enliven our world and create opportunities for joyful sharing of meaningful moments together. The outdoor musical instruments created by Percussion Play are diverse and accessible to everyone, enhancing any setting. With these high quality outdoor musical instruments that are both “musical” and durable we can help create wonderful outdoor sensory experiences for everyone!
Innovative outdoor music solutions accessible for all
Outdoor musical play equipment offers cognitive, emotional, physical and inclusive play opportunities for everyone, everywhere. Through music, a child can express emotions, develop a sense of rhythm, support their physical development, increase communication skills and benefit from auditory and tactile stimulation. Simple to play, the Percussion Play instruments enable creative experimentation and stimulate the imagination. The instruments are designed to be accessible to all, including those using mobility aids such as wheelchairs.
Intergenerational outdoor musical play – the key to great family connections
Outdoor musical instruments make the ideal addition to any environment aiming to foster the development of intergenerational play, known to improve the physical and psychological wellbeing of the community. With Percussion Play’s pentatonically tuned instruments there is little reliance on musical skill, thereby leaving children, adolescents, adults and seniors able to enter into a non-hierarchical creative environment that facilitates mutual learning and playing, regardless of age or musical ability. Playing outdoor musical instruments with elders can speed up the development of a child’s social and cognitive skills, and help improve their self-esteem. Sharing music is a natural way of spending quality, fun time together with loved ones!
