The ‘Bambajam Symphony Kit’ is a three octave chromatic xylophone with a unique feature – each key can be removed and played as a single instrument.
As a Xylophone, it looks similar to the Piano in that sharps and flats are black, whilst natural notes are blonde bamboo. Keys can be configured in any order on the frame so students use only the notes they need for their part of the arrangement.
Alongside traditional music education, the Bambajam methodology is designed to develop important social skills through creative problem solving. Bambajam Pelangi (Early Years and Primary) and Symphony (Secondary) help students build confidence in performing, whilst learning to read music notation.
Bambajam has undergone a rigorous programme evaluation at Green School, Bali. Voted year-after-year as the ‘Worlds Greenest School’, it places a high value in both holistic, and cross-curriculum education.
N.B. For SEN settings: Please put a note with your order to indicate that it is needed for an SEN setting, so that we know to include the relevant materials.
The ‘Bambajam Symphony Kit’ can be played as a solo instrument, as a chamber instruments with 2 to 6 players, and as a whole class resource by sharing our the notes between the pupils.
With a range of 37 notes, the ‘Bambajam Symphony Kit’ has enough notes for most class sizes and comes with access to an accompanying library of Music Packs arranged especially for Bambajam. Music Packs are arranged for each individual note of the original scores. Each score sheet has Bambajam notation on one side and traditional notation is on the flip side. Each student plays one or two scores and teachers can assign parts based on difficulty level or class size. When the class puts all the parts together the piece of music comes together.
The library is full of arrangements for Classical, Jazz and World Music, as well as composition sheets and teaching resources.
