No matter the location, the stage is set for lively musical outdoor adventures! Percussion Play instruments make musical expression accessible to everyone, everywhere.

There is no need for musical direction and any combination of our musical instruments can be played together harmoniously. These are enjoyable and attractive musical instruments which you’ll want to come back and play again and again. Music is naturally the most universal language at our disposal and Percussion Play instruments are effortlessly played and enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Differences in age, gender, ethnic or linguistic background have no place in music, and obstacles present in other activities defined by motor and mental ability are absent where music is concerned.

MUSIC BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER

Making music together in a group is very powerful and creates an experience of shared emotion. A communal outdoor music space will foster positive informal
interactions and avoid social isolation by providing people with opportunities to have fun together, learn something new, support each other and make friends – all in the fresh air! Playing together is different from playing on your own and allows players to experiment with different sounds. The possibilities are endless.

MUSIC IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL

We have such a deep connection to music because it is ‘hardwired’ in our brains and bodies. Music can lift our mood, can relax the mind, energize the body, and even help people better manage pain. The simplicity of these instruments and the instant musical success they provide will give a sense of accomplishment and
increase self-esteem. Music helps keep you calm and relaxed, builds creativity, improves patience and brings happiness to you and others.

MUSIC IS GOOD FOR THE MIND

Music engages areas of the brain which are involved with paying attention, making predictions, and updating events in our memory. Making music together and music therapy will help children, adults and seniors process their thoughts, help dispel anxiety, frustration, or fear, and help maintain memories. Access to outdoor musical instruments is sure to provide an active solution for the improvement and maintenance of mental health, regardless of your age.

MUSIC IS A MOTIVATOR

Easy-to-play outdoor musical instruments will facilitate cognitive function and coordinate motor movements. Placed in attractive outdoor settings, people will be motivated to step outside to play them, or for those with reduced mobility, benefits are still gained from small movements such as gripping and lifting the mallet and hitting those sweet notes! Going outside to your local music park or trail and playing an instrument naturally leads to increased physical activity and exercise.

MUSIC IS FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS

Being in nature boosts energy levels, improves circadian rhythm, encourages the production of serotonin, reduces stress, and simply makes us feel good. Just 30 minutes outside (even on cloudy days) gives the daily recommended dose of Vitamin D. Playing music outside provides exercise and stimulation and encourages people to stay outside for much longer than perhaps they would normally – maximizing health benefits.
