This is an exceptional way for children and adults, ages four to 100+ years, to play an instrument with no formal training or intervention by others. Even children under four years of age, who may not be quite ready to match the colors yet, will benefit from this awesome outdoor musical instrument. With these and most of our inspirational instruments there are no wrong notes. From the first note on the child (and/or others) will feel success, as they experience the joy of creating beautiful music on their own, or with your assistance if you cannot resist playing along.
Any combination of notes struck on either one or more instruments simultaneously will create a wonderful symphony of sound. It will wake up a child's natural desire to experience and explore their inborn musical abilities, which may lead to a lifetime of enjoyment as young musicians learn more and hone their skills.

It makes you smarter, happier, and more productive at any age.
