Chord_CU21_UKULELEUkulele                                                                                   The ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of a small guitar-like instrument. It gained great popularity elsewhere during the early 20th century, and from there spread internationally.beginner-ukulele-chord-diagram

The tone and volume of the instrument varies with size and construction. Ukuleles commonly come in four sizes: soprano, concert, tenor, and baritone.

glockenspielGlockenspiel                                                                                           A glockenspiel  is a percussion instrument composed of a set of tuned keys arranged in the fashion of the keyboard of a piano. Glockenspiels are ideal for teaching children about basic musical harmony.glockenspiel notes


Handbells                                                                                                A handbell is a bell designed to be rung by hand. To ring a handbell, a ringer grasps the bell by its slightly flexible handle – traditionally made of leather, but often now made of plastic – and moves the wrist to make the hinged clapper inside the bell strike. An individual handbell can be used simply as a signal to catch people’s attention or summon them together, but handbells are generally heard in tuned sets.scale
