Formerly called the Music House Treasure Basket this wonderful instrument collection has been completely re-designed and upgraded by our expert friends at London’s Music House for Children, and is part of their ‘Little Birdsong’ range of Early Years music resources. It now contains 22 instruments.
There’s a wide range of different instruments here, with extras of some of the more versatile ones, together with great new song cards and a CD for parents and practitioners.
Please note that the collection is intended for 3 year olds upwards and also that these are not toys but real musical instruments (just like professional ones but in most cases scaled-down to suit smaller players) and that the younger children will need close supervision. Do let the children explore and play independently as well as together with parents and/or practitioners but do always keep an eye on things.
It is our experience that both children and grown-ups get so much more out of music-making by playing together. Music-making is a powerful learning experience for grown-ups as well as children - learning and exploring together multiplies the benefits for everyone.
