Music is as old as humanity, but the earliest notes weren’t played in concert halls — they were played for the hills and the mountains, the lakes and the plains. They were played outside.

Today’s outdoor musical instruments are a unique way of creating a fun, inclusive environment for people of all ages and abilities. Professionally tuned and fully functioning, these striking instruments inspire people to create music — and memories. No experience required!

Types of Outdoor Musical Instruments

Whether you’re looking to add an extra element of fun to a park, creating a supplemental music area at a school, or maybe creating a recreational area for all to enjoy in your retirement community, these instruments are the key to creating a beautiful soundscape. And with the flexibility to be attached to the floor or a wall, outdoor instruments fit in virtually any space.

Drums:

People of all ages love to try their hand at these drums — literally! No mallets or accessories are required when your community can create music with their hands. Try the Congas, a traditional single-headed drum that make energetic rhythms, or the Babel Drum, which produces mellow, warm tones well suited to relaxation and music therapy.

Chimes & Bells:

Chimes can be arranged individually around an outdoor space or placed together for a symphony arrangement, brightening any area with their melodious sound and sustained notes. Or, for a more striking architectural feature, try Tubular Bells, which generate deep, resonant notes that can be heard and felt.

The colorful Harmony Flowers and Harmony Bells are available individually or in two ‘posy’ arrangements each with three flowers. These cheerful playground additions make an ideal choice for inclusive play areas and smaller budding musicians.

Xylophone:

Every person at every age will feel like a kid again when they start exploring the fun sounds of the Xylophone! There is a wide array of options, including The Duo, a distinctive instrument with an ergonomic design to allow multiple players to collaborate while also accommodating people in wheelchairs. Meanwhile, the Sansa-Rimba, a colorful 15-note instrument with impressive resonance and striking tones, is perfect for beginners.
