In the 1920s, Carl Orff (of Carmina Burana fame) developed a method of teaching children about music that focuses on treating music just like the spoken word - starting with just a few notes and continually adding complexity as time passes. The Orff method necessitated a collection of simple, non-intimidating musical instruments to teach the foundations of western melody and harmony in a group setting - what is more well-suited for the job than drums and rudimentary keyboard percussion instruments?
Each Orff keyboard has removable bars and is designed to be stored and moved easily. This chime bar is made from Palisono wood and creates a very deep, resonant, earthy C pitch. It comes with its own pinewood resonating box with rubber feet.
