When it comes to teaching kids music, most educators agree that the Orff Approach is the best one. For those who aren't familiar with this teaching method (also known as Orff Schulwerk), it's a very common series of developmental approaches that combines songs and movement into music lessons for kids. It also just happens to be the name of a specific group of instruments that feature removable bars. In fact, bars for Orff Instruments is exactly what this catalog is all about. Whether you need bars for a xylophone, marimba, glockenspiel or metallophone, this is the place to find them.
If quality is your main concern, you can breathe a sigh of relief; only the top Orff brands like Lyons, Sonor, Studio and Suzuki are offered here. On the first page alone, you'll discover many best sellers, including the Suzuki Xylophone Bass Bar. Featuring an oversized bar that's carefully tuned and pitched one full octave bellow the bass xylophone, this bar is the perfect way to add a new dimension of color to your Orff ensemble.
Two other popular sellers here come courtesy of Sonor: first off, there's the Sonor Contra Bass Chime Bars F-B. These chime bars are available as deep bass, contrabass and sub contrabass and each are mounted on a resonator. Secondly, there's the Sub-Contrabass Palisono Chime Bars. Durable and moisture-resistant, each of these synthetic Palisono bars (available in the keys of C, D and E) act as its own instrument, and the resonator boxes of each one contain a handle and mallet holder. Played separately or combined with other instruments, either one of these bar choices will make welcoming additions to your music classroom.
And there are many other bars for Orff instruments here as well. Even if you're simply looking for Metallo replacement bars, Lyons has you covered in that department. Your best bet is to explore each of your options thoroughly while taking both your current needs and budget into consideration. In the end, you'll be sure to find something to help make your music class the talk of recess.
