Freenotes Harmony Park offers a wide range of large-scale musical park instruments that were originally designed in conceived by Grammy Award Winning, Richard Cooke. He wanted to give access to musical instruments to those that could not otherwise afford to learn to play an instrument.
Additionally he wanted to create instruments that encouraged gross motor skills from the large muscle groups. This is why the ergonomics of the instruments is such an important factor. None of the instruments produce any sharp or flat tones, this means there are no wrong notes, and this is important when you are making music in a public space.
By removing wrong notes and using designs that do not require intricate fine motor skills he developed musical parks that worked in harmony with their surroundings. Most importantly these instruments remove play barriers so that people of all ages could make music instinctively.
