Thomann launches new Kid’s Drum and Percussion Range
My Drum Lessons has been told that Thomann has developed an innovative percussion range, designed to offer a safe, musical education for young children and toddlers. Musikhaus Thomann, Europe’s largest music store, is now offering a new product line of percussion instruments for children aged one year and above. Each individual instrument in theThomann Kid’s Percussion range has been designed to aid the motor and cognitive development of children from an early age. The line covers a huge range of instruments; everything from cleaves to shakers, to wrist and ankle bells.
The instruments are extremely durable and don’t include any small parts. Thomann guarantees the use of 100% natural, raw materials, such as beech wood and grain used in the fillings of instruments. All paints and varnishes are water-based and made in Germany.
“The instruments are ideal for young children and toddlers, especially considering the robust material which has been used and their tactile, visual and tonal values. To help a child’s perception of the different types of instruments, it‘s indeed advantageous to have varying masses and different types of materials in the shakers. Children will notice how the weight and sound of each instrument varies“, confirms Prof. Marianne Steffen-Wittek, lecturer and international award winner of musical education.
