Sing Up! Article Gives Top Tips for Outside Music Areas

The latest Sing Up magazine (Summer 13) includes an interesting article 'Sow a Sound Garden' in which Percussion Play was asked to contribute. The article includes top tips for creating an outside music area and the benefits of choosing to take music lessons into the Great Outdoors. The article has some great photos of our instruments installed at Saltergate Infant School and some wonderful comments from their music co-ordinator including "They are wonderful to look at, and the sound echoes all around the playground which is magical. It's lovely to see some of the quieter children growing in confidence through playing music outdoors during their playtime."

Singing games and music making in the outdoors are especially fun and bring a whole new dimension to the children’s learning and development. Being outside means the instruments can be played a little louder, they can raise their voices a little higher and movement in unrestricted. Children will benefit from listening to and creating sounds, picking up language and numbers from songs, as well as building confidence and social skills as they develop their own musical skills.
