pentatonic musical instruments

Pentatonic Musical InstrumentsPentatonic musical instruments use the Pentatonic Scale, which consists of five notes (DEGAB) and makes any succession of notes harmonious. The very high quality of our musical instruments allows the child to experience music in its fullest meaning. Our range of musical instruments (mostly Pentatonic) are chosen for their very high tonal quality, craftsmanship and suitability as first musical instruments for young children. Read more about Pentatonic musical instruments and the use of the Pentatonic Scale.

You might also like to take a look at our 'I Love To Be Me - Songs in the Mood of the Fifth' book, which has a selection of songs for young children from 5-9 years and beyond, composed using a 7 string Pentatonic lyre.

These instruments show a true agreement with what the ear hears, the hand feels and eye sees. This stimulates, harmonises and educates the whole human being. Kjell Andersson
