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.

Trip Advisor Boscombe, Dorset UK
We both love playing on the musical instruments, and love it when we are playing on the beach and paddling in the sea you can hear the chimes from the pier!Case Study
Lions Park (Music Therapist) Søllerød, Denmark
We’ve just installed the instruments and both I and several of the staff have had fun with the residents in the new musical garden. One lady in her 70’s has moderately severe dementia,. When she was younger she would play the piano, however whenever I tried playing the piano with her during our sessions she would become frustrated and upset because she was no longer able to play ‘correctly’. However, taking her into the garden to play the pentatonic instruments which she could just play and explore, with no wrong notes, her senses were opened and music making became enjoyable again.Case Study
Care Worker - Aars Elder Centre Aars, Denmark
One of our dementia residents has difficulty lifting one arm. When he first starts to play the outdoor xylophone he can barely lift his arm, yet before long he starts to lift it higher and higher, the effect can be seen after just a few minutes!”Case Study
Director - Future Homes Development UK
Our lovely courtyard lacked anything that was sculptural, create curiosity and encourage activity. Now we have the musical instruments which do all three! They are used extensively by passers-by as it is impossible to walk past them and not have a go. A very good investment.Case Study

One of the residents here has already said that when his grandson visits he has now got somewhere to take him and they can enjoy making music together. The amount of pleasure they bring cannot be underestimated.Case Study
