Thousands of organizations have come to us wanting our help to bring music and harmony to their parks and playgrounds, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, hospices, museums and family-attractions, and many other different settings.
We strongly believe in extending play beyond the traditional, making play inclusive and the positivity of multi-generational interaction. Music has great power for bringing people together and including musical instruments in a park, playground or trail makes music-making irresistible for people of all cultures, ages, and abilities.

I am from Essex, Iowa, USA and we had the pleasure of meeting Robin and installing 3 pieces in our park last year. This weekend we have a community celebration with many activities in the park. I wanted to share with you that I sat for more than 2 hours in the park today and watched people of ALL ages approach and play the instruments. It was so heart warming to watch this and it reinforced the importance of musical instruments to provide a balance of play options in community areas. I have seen this happen on a regular basis but not when so many other activities were being offered at the same time. The small set of musical offerings have been an asset to our project. Thank you for creating such an important product to share the joy of music in community spaces. Janine Johnson Essex, Iowa.Case Study

I have found the Percussion Play xylophone and drums to be great instruments for use in music therapy at starship children’s hospital. They are durable and weatherproof which means I have been able to use them both inside and outside, and they are easy to wipe down. The pentatonic xylophone has a lovely tone and allows the children to engage in shared music-making without playing any ‘wrong notes’.Case Study

Recently Pollard Park in Blenheim has had some brand new percussion instruments, courtesy of Percussion Play, installed in the new playground. The drums, vibraphone and tonal chimes have been met with massive excitement from the whole community. People are going to the park now specifically to check out these instruments! Not only are they colourful and accessible height-wise for children, the quality of the instruments is outstanding, meaning they make a fantastic sound. This robustness means they will stand the test of time and be able to handle being in the outdoors for many years to come. Thank you so much on behalf of the Blenheim community - the percussion instruments have been a roaring success! 'Case Study

It was like Christmas here the other day as we excitedly tore open boxes. Tape and shredded cardboard flew askew! Could you hear the “oohs” and “aahs” across the pond? The Sonora came out amazing. It’s stunning! We are finishing up the prep work and hope to have it installed by the end of next week! I promise to send pictures!Case Study
Jane Laws - Elm Road School Wisbech, Cambridgeshire
To make a lasting memorial place for a boy who loved music, colour and butterfiles we investigated purchasing musical instruments. The first website we looked at was Percussion Play and from the first communication with the company we have been very impressed. Everyone has been extremely helpful and the service we have received has been thorough and efficient. We were delighted our instruments arrived quickly, were of an excellent quality and easy to install. We are looking forward to purchasing a new babel drum in the new academic year to complete our special area.Case Study
