Giant Outdoor Xylophones
Music is a universal language, and our Giant Outdoor Xylophones encourage group participation. Children of differing abilities can happily play together, bridging learning differences. Group participation will instil confidence in more hesitant children as they explore musical notes. Children will enjoy making music in their leisure time as well as supervised lessons outdoors. Children bang, sing and make their own type of music.
Our giant outdoor xylophones will be sure to draw attention and be a real statement piece in your outdoor classroom. A true investment piece and designed to stay outdoors all year round.
Hand-made in the Highlands of Scotland from local sustainable timber, such as Larch and Douglas Fir. These woods have a nice resonance and are durable and as a result each instrument is built to last and to withstand the unpredictable British weather. There is no need to treat the wood unless you wish to for aesthetic reasons. The instrument can be treated with a varnish or stain without the sound being affected.
