Our Individual Chimes are a fantastic playground resource for introducing children to a basic eight note scale, which is most commonly learnt first when beginning to learn to play an instrument. Additionally, these wonderful playground chimes are tuned to the C major scale, one of the most common key signatures used within western music.
Since the chimes are fixed onto a back plate, which features the corresponding notes in letter form, children can begin to explore the world of music as they tap each chime, identifying what each one sounds like: beginning to understand musical concepts from an early age.
As children form their own bands with one another, using the chimes as their instruments, they are developing their communication, language, cooperation and self-esteem while they play their magical songs in front of one another. In addition, independence can be enhanced as children learn to replace items once they are finished playing; aided by a beater holder on every chime!
Crafted from high quality stainless steel, our fantastic Individual Chimes are very durable and long lasting, while also providing benefits to the sounds of the notes: ensuring they are full and round, creating calming melodies in the playground. These soothing sounds can help promote better mental health for children, even from the young age of reception and nursery children.
Perfect as part of any playground scheme or on their own, this fantastic musical instrument can be used to create a number of configurations. From a full eight note scale, a pentatonic six note scale to a C major arpeggio with four notes, they’re perfect for outdoor play and learning environment. EYFS children can happily be introduced to musical instruments since it has no sharps or flats and contains the basic notes: C, D, E, F, G, A, B and C.
For older children, this fantastic cross-curricular instrument provides the opportunity for introducing scientific concepts as children explore why the shorter chimes create a higher pitch noise and the longer chimes create lower pitch noises.
