A basic pentatonic lyre for introducing music to a child. For use at home, in the kindergarten by musical games and storytelling, and much more. It is very often used in Waldorf schools.
This lyre has a special feature in that it has an opening in the area where you play the strings, such that it is possible to use both hands simultaneously. To do this you put the lyre in an upright position on your lap resting on the left-hand wrist. You can let it slide down slightly between your thighs to have a firmer grip.
The two-handed playing challenges and stimulates motor skills and balance. Includes a tuning wrench and an instruction sheet that contains more tips and tricks regarding how to use your instrument.
The pentatonic scale spans over five whole-tone steps and is built up by an open fifth tuning. The special thing about the pentatonic scale is that whatever you do with it, it will always sound good. You can let the fingers stroll up and down the strings in any combination of tones and it gives you little sweet melodies all the time. A light, almost heavenly scale that allows you to create music freely without the frustrating struggle with wrong notes or inharmonious sound.
The experience of the five-tone scale is fundamental in all music. You can find it in new and ancient folk music, classical pieces as well as in popular music. Children all over the world, spontaneously sing it in various ways. For this reason, it is the adult's obvious companion in the work with children. From infancy up to the third grade, this scale meets the child's inner needs.
