Testimonials

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.

Percussion Play

Crystal Howard, Manager Hansen Mortuaries and Memorial Garden, Phoenix, Arizona

“There’s no doubt that our sound station is probably one of the favorite stations in our healing garden. I’ve walked through it with visitors and funeral professionals and all become emotional when they ring the Bell Lyre and say their loved one's name."

Case Study

Sue Wiedder, Director of Development and Communications Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children,Pittsburgh, PA.

“I can’t say enough good things about the instruments. They're such a positive asset for our school, especially for the population of students that we have. The big thing is accessibility but when you see a student with the mallets in their hands and they’re hitting the tubular bells and seeing the smiles on their faces and their reaction, that makes it all worth it – music is amazing. All I heard was such calming and pleasant sounds.”

Larry P. Neal, Library Director Clinton-Macomb Public Library, Michigan, USA

I thought you might enjoy a few photos of our installation! We actually had special flatwork stamped concrete paths created for full access to the instruments. Also since they are free standing and not in a children’s play area I have already observed several adults happily engaged in playing the instruments, of course include me in that group!

Principal Catherine Bouliane Sambro Elementary, Nova Scotia, Canada

“I get to listen to music playing every time the students are outside. I’m across the field and I hear clear melodic sounds. The instruments are really well designed, the sound is clear and matches what the students hear in music class. The instruments are well constructed and sturdy. So glad we decided to add them to our outdoor music area”.

Camp Courageous CEO Charlie Becker Camp Courageous, Monticello, Iowa

“It’s just something that everyone is in love with,” he said. “Everybody can come here and play all of these instruments. You could be in a power wheelchair or run back and forth across the stepping stones. It’s all engaging, fun, and accessible, and most of all inclusive to everybody. You can have players as old as 100 years old and as young as 2 to 3 years old out here.”

It wasn’t long before counselors recognized the therapeutic, sensory benefits that the music offers our campers, especially those with autism or visual impairments."
