Outdoor Musical Instruments
Ensemble for Churches
The Freenotes Harmony Park outdoor musical instruments for Churches were designed with acoustic precision and perfect tone by a Grammy Award winning musician. They are built to maintain pure and soothing tones through years of rigorous play and exposure to the elements of nature. They are perfect for musical beginners and experts alike.
The sculptural elegance and flowing lines of the instruments are a fine addition to a church's outdoor setting. They're offered in color palettes that awaken the senses with bright primaries, or with natural colors that blend subtly into any environment. They are working sculptures and true percussion instruments. Freenotes allure draws in children and adults alike, to play and to enjoy, creating a full sensory experience.
What are Freenotes Harmony Park Instruments?
This outdoor musical playground equipment is a collection of real pentatonic scale instruments designed for improvisational play. They encourage learning music, rhythm, and patterns in a way that allows success for every player. They can ignite a spark in a person that has interest in making music, but with assured success in a spontaneous atmosphere.
These instruments are ACCESSIBLE, AFFORDABLE, and ENGAGING. They give all people access to music in a way they can’t get anywhere else. These instruments engage the WHOLE PERSON: the desire for language, the body's urge to move, the brain's attention to patterns, the ear's lead in initiating communication, the voice's response to sounds, as well as the eye-hand coordination associated with playing musical instruments.
"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."
What Do You Get?
The Weenotes Ensemble contains instruments that are perfect in a church playground setting. These half-size instruments are the toughest we have ever built, with aluminum resonators replacing the previous ABS designs. They occupy less space and they require less budget too, making them attractive on many levels. Stands come in two sizes either standard or preschool. This collection includes the Griffin, Piper, & Merry instruments.
The Griffin is patterned after the Swirl, a sculpturally designed set of anodized aluminum chimes. The Griffin features 11 notes in the key of C Major that have a bright, sustaining sound in the alto/soprano register. The Griffin produces warm, rich, full tones that linger, making it similar to finger painting with sound. Sweep the mallet across the chimes and get a sound similar to a harp. It is so much fun for children and adults alike..
The Piper, a fiberglass marimba, is a great instrument to play improvisational rhythms. Its sounds are reminiscent of the islands. It features 11 fiberglass bars that provide a contrast to its sister, the Merry. The Piper's sounds are earthy and percussive and resonate in the alto and soprano pitch range.
Sister to the Piper is the Merry. It is an anodized aluminum xylophone with bright, sustaining tones. This outdoor musical instrument makes melody with its lyrical voice. It is a smaller version of the Freenotes Pegasus. A companion to Piper's marimba, when played together they provide delightfully full sounds of a small ensemble. They are quite the pair. Get three to six people together, and the entire ensemble will sing praise!
