Music Session Instrument Set 3 – Castanets & Finger Cymbals


For 20 Players 3-6-Years-Old – Preschool & School-Age

Yes, that’s right, just two different instruments but enough for everyone — you’ll be surprised how well this works


You need multiple instruments enough for each child in the room. That doesn’t mean having a huge range of instruments on display all at once. If you have too many choices of instruments on view you often get disharmony and your job becomes harder.

This set is limited to just two, 20 pairs of quick-response castanets and 20 pairs of easy-to-hold finger-cymbals. The benefit of each instrument coming as a pair is that the children learn the good musician’s skill of playing with both hands — not just favouring the dominant hand.

You get good value for money by paying less than $9 per instrument. Buying this set enables you add to your existing kit so that your children can explore new sounds and gain mastery over two new instruments.

What benefits are there in having everyone play the same sound at the same time?

✅  it’s so much more ‘musical’ than random sounds put together

✅  it minimises the sensory overload on delicate ears

✅  it gives clarity of sound in rooms that are often very ‘live’ and loud with reverberation off hard surfaces

✅  it stops squabbling, jealousy and disappointment when a favourite instrument is hotly contested

✅  it promotes togetherness and makes sharing easy because everybody gets the same

✅  holding the same thing gives everyone the feeling of belonging to the group

✅  We give FREE delivery on orders over $100 Australia-wide* (excludes remote locations — need a quote? CONTACT)

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.
