Music Makers Curriculum
Making music...to their ears!
Play & Park Structures Music Makers bring whimsical instruments and sounds outdoors to the playground. The Music Makers instruments are designed so that each instrument actually creates a unique sound that’s never been heard on the playground before. Add Music Makers components to your playground and experience the incredible tunes that children can create!
Standards-based Music Activity Cards
Each order of multiple Music Makers components comes with standards-based music activity cards to be used outdoors on the playground. Each activity teaches children about a different aspect of music including tone, rhythm and much more. Physical activity is incorporated into each card with creative movement and dance. Enhance learning opportunities on your playground with the Music Makers activity cards!
Deep Kettle Drum
The Deep Kettle Drum produces two deep, resonating sounds. A deep bass sound can be achieved by striking the drum in the middle and an open sound is achieved by striking the drum closer to the edge.
Drums are percussion instruments that can be tapped with fingers, or struck with an open hand. Children can create a steady beat by tapping Drum Line with their hands, drumming with their fingertips, or banging with cupped hands.
The Tuba Talk creates a loud powerful sound on the playground. Children can talk, sing or hum into the smaller opening and listen to their voice as it is amplified to make music.
The clear, rich sound of a whistle echoes across the playground. A short push & pull creates a quick sharp sound, while a full extension of the plunger creates a sound that is deeper and richer in tone and resonates longer.
The Rain Wheel can be either turned or shaken, creating a sound that imitates rain. Children can also tap the wheel to make a more controlled sound or create percussive rhythms.
Rattle & Ring
This unique combination of bells and scraper creates the perfect variety of sounds. Each bell has its own distinct pitch and the scraper creates a raspy tone when the raised grooves are scraped.
