Preschool/Junior Mixed Set of Castanets & Finger Cymbals
Add to your collection with two more easy-to-play instruments — classic castanets and gleaming brass mini cymbals. Because of its short sound and its beak shape, a castanet is a great choice for making the ‘quack’ sounds that feature in so many traditional children’s songs. The finger cymbals add a subtle accent to songs and can be a beautiful sound in magical, light-filled songs like You are My Sunshine.
The set contains:
- 20 Pairs of Castanets — blue and red painted wood, with replaceable elastic ties
- 20 Pairs of Finger Cymbals — bright brass with wooden knobs in a natural finish
This affordable set of early childhood resources is an excellent choice for use in a Music Classroom, an Early Learning Setting, a Library or a Community Centre. The children are instantly attracted by the musical sounds — the short, sharp ’click’ of the castanets and the mysterious, long-lasting high frequencies of the cymbals. This child-engagement factor is one of the things you gain by choosing instruments curated by our specialist team of Early Childhood Music Educators.
A set like this is great for children learning about elements of music such as rhythm and timbre. Over time they will hear the differences between a high-sounding instrument that they gently tap, and an instrument with two small, round, hollowed-out discs that they press together to make a really crisp sound.
When children concentrate on one or two instruments in a music session they develop their fine listening skills — so important for phonological awareness in their literacy.
