Peripole is proud to announce the rejuvenation of a Peripole exclusive project created in 1960 entitled “SOUND: Activity Guides for the Music and Science Programs” involving the teaching of sound in the elementary and junior high science curriculum through its application to music. This original program was created with the help of special consultants Dr. Charles T. Horn and Mack Perry to provide students the opportunity to investigate the nature and characteristics of sound.
We know that music helps us in many ways, from motivating us to get up and do our best, to comforting us in challenging times. Listening to recorded music by the artists and bands we love can help us feel empowered, give us courage, insights, and feelings of support. Making our own music can help us be creative, build connections, and help us understand ourselves and others.
Given our current global state and unknown future for the music classroom, the need for personal instrument kits is more vital than ever. In an effort to keep our children musically engaged, Peripole has created Personal Music Kits designed specifically to cover an array of tones as well as movement in one convenient and budget-friendly package!
