A lovely set of chime bars in a sturdy, easy-to-open-and-close case – great for using with little ones. The chimes have a great, sweet sound and are well-tuned. These chime bars can be taken out of the case and this can help with teaching – e.g. a pentatonic (five note) scale can be easily created by removing E and B, and you can visually show students the relationship between pitches. Useful for Kodaly teaching too. Highly recommended as a product, both for play or for teaching young children. I've found my young students love the rainbow coloured keys, and having something visually stimulating is great!
What would have improved this item for me would have been to have a greater range of notes available – an octave and a half (e.g. a lower G to a high C) would allow for a greater range of melodies. This was the only item with a suitable width of bar that I could use with a student who has limited movement in her arms, so I made the compromise.
