Learning Music with Colours

Our wooden xylophone has always been a top favourite toy at home. C tinkers with it often, sometimes requesting me to play some of her favourite tunes. When we were working on the unit on Rainbow, I colour coded one of C's favourite nursery rhyme, The Wheels On The Bus, to the colours of our xylophone.  It also helped daddy to be able to play a few tunes for the little humans too!

We didn't manage to complete the whole song. Maybe there are too many colours for a start, but at least C managed to match and follow the colour in the score to the colour on the xylophone. We'll try again! soon, with a simpler song that is made up of lesser notes.

We bought our xylophone from a wooden toy shop in Denmark, Western Australia while we were on holiday 2 years back. I was so excited that the xylophone is one that is in tuned! Always request to test the xylophone before purchasing.
