Thousands of organisations 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 a 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 ability.

Anna Moore - NZ Registered Music Therapist Nelson, Marlborough & Tasman, New Zealand
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
Olly Lowery - Registered Music Therapist Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre Starship Childrens Hospital - Auckland New Zealand
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
