Didgeridoo

 

The didgeridoo is believed to be the world’s oldest wind instrument, dating back thousands of years. It originates as a musical instrument of the North Australian Aborigine.

 

The didgeridoo is traditionally played accompanied with clap sticks and/or the clapping together of boomerangs in Corroborees (ceremonial dances). Players can also tap out rhythms on the side of the didgeridoo using fingers or sticks.

Traditionally it is constructed from eucalyptus branches or bamboo, but a simple didgeridoo can be made from a length of PVC pipe, some beeswax and paint. Along with making the didgeridoo participants will also make a carrying case.

Slit Drum

A Slit Drum is an elaborate hard wood box that has tongues carved out of its top. Each tongue is tuned to a different note in a scale. When a tongue is played it vibrates up and down producing a warm woody tone. Songs and melodies can be played either with provided rubber mallets or with the tips of your fingers.

Giant metallophones

A metallophone is any musical insyrument consisting of tuned metal  bars which are struck to make sound, usually with a mallet. Metallophones have been used in music for thousands of years. There are several different types used in Balinese and Javanese gamelan ensembles, including the gender, gangsa and saron. These instruments have a single row of bars, tuned to the distinctive pelog or slendro scales, or a subset of them. The Western glockenspiel and vibraphone are also metallophones: they have two rows of bars, in an imitation of the piano  keyboard, and are tuned to the chromatic scale.

 

Alec Duncan, Thank you for the instruction and recommend reading. - Sharon Davis

 

Child’s Play Music is the brainchild of Alec Duncan, a qualified early childhood educator.  While working in child care he began building musical instruments from recycled materials for children to use – instruments that were simple to play, safe, almost unbreakable and which sounded great.  - Perth & Mandurah, Western Australia.
