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.

Nothing prepared me for the sheer joy that your instruments brought to our playground. The sound they create alone or together is unique in our town and brings a sense of calmness, relaxation to those in the playground whilst also giving joy and sense of magic to those playing your instruments that this beautiful sound is coming from them!Case Study

Choosing the instruments for Calum's Cabin has undoubtedly been the best thing about the last few months. The musical instruments from Percussion Play - bought with the money which so many people generously donated in Donald's memory - are beautiful. The inscription on the drum is perfect. Caroline tells me that when families arrive the first thing they do is run outside to play with them. Donald would have loved that.Case Study

Both children and adults love playing them, it's the first thing the children do, wet or dry run into the garden to enjoy them. They have brought so much joy already.Case Study

We have been very happy with the instruments. After a year they are still in great shape, and people use them every day. I had a music program every week this summer in the garden with the instruments and it was very popular.Case Study

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
