Benefits of outdoor musical instruments

Outdoor musical instruments are not only a great source of fun but also a powerful educational tool that supports a wide range of developmental benefits for children.

These include cognitive enhancements and emotional growth which are integral to a well-rounded educational approach.

Outdoor musical instruments play a crucial role in boosting cognitive abilities among children. Playing a musical instrument can improve a child’s memory as they are required to recall and remember certain notes, rhythms and sequences.

It also boosts their problem-solving skills as learning musical patterns and rhythms involves analytical thought, where children recognise to play certain notes in a sequential order.

Playing outdoor musical instruments also provides children with physical benefits, contributing to a better health and improved motor skills as children learn hand-eye coordination.

Other benefits that outdoor musical instruments bring to a school include enhanced emotional and social development among children.

Playing music in groups requires teamwork and helps children learn how to cooperate with others, an essential social skill. It also children to express feelings and thoughts through music, which may be difficult to articulate verbally, particularly in younger children.

Through the introduction of outdoor musical instruments in playgrounds, AMV Playgrounds is dedicated to fostering an environment where children can grow intellectually, physically, and emotionally, all while enjoying the enriching world of music.

Selecting the right outdoor musical instruments for your school

Choosing the right combination of outdoor musical instruments for your school's playground involves careful consideration.

These choices should align not only with the physical layout and space available in your school, but also with the educational objectives and needs of your students.

Large instruments such as the ranges of multi chimes may be suitable for bigger playgrounds, while smaller outdoor spaces may benefit from smaller instruments such as the Virtuoso Musical range.

It is important to ensure there is enough room for children to move and play freely around the instruments without crowding.
