Overview

The Best selling Boomwhacker C- c diatonic plus octavator caps set will take your Boomwhacker activities to the next level. Found in most elementary music classrooms and music therapy programs around the world, these affordable, color-coded, tuned percussion tubes provide an opportunity for any age and ability to experience success making music. With no limit to the creative learning process, students can feel the joy of learning and experiencing rhythm, pitch and movement while having fun! Set includes all 8 pitches from C to c on a diatonic scale (white keys on the piano). The included octavator caps lower the pitch of a Boomwhacker by an octave when placed on one end expanding your range of sounds! Each person holds one or two of these eight perfectly-tuned percussion tubes and whacks them against his or her arm, thigh, or any hard surface to produce the sound. The gradations in length of the tubes help players arrange themselves in sequential notes and to understand the relationship between length and pitch; similarly, the color gradations provide an additional way to visualize the sequence of notes and an understanding of the spectrum. Art and music converge, and groups that cooperate well can make beautiful music together. Tubes are 12" to 24" long."
