Full Teaching Support Included

The ‘World Music Basket – Large – 30 Instruments’ is the perfect introduction to World Music and music-making for Early Years, Primary and Secondary settings, and also for use in the home.

We have put together as many different instruments in each basket as we can, making these great resources both for music and for cross-cultural studies. This is the biggest basket and it contains 30 instruments, all of them made by hand using natural and recycled materials.

Each collection comes in a sturdy bamboo storage basket and contains a 16 page Activity Guide – a brilliantly written handbook for the teacher or parent. The Guide not only gives you loads of ideas for developing musical and developmental skills, it also has a section showing how music and rhythm can be used to support the teaching of other subjects, from arithmetic to phonetics. The Guide has been written especially for non-musicians and is in three main sections;

  • Exploring Sounds
  • Making Music
  • Using the Instruments to Improve Learning

It covers, amongst other topics:

  • Creating Sounds
  • Sorting Sounds
  • Talking Sounds
  • Playing Pictures
  • Exploring and Building with Rhythms
  • What Animal is That?
  • Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales
  • Echoes
  • Mixing Rhythms

The final section shows how music and rhythm can transform other fields of learning, from counting to phonetics, making them easy and fun to learn. The Guide Is for everyone and contains special notes relevant to SEN settings.

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.

Product Information

What's included

Please note that for reasons of stock availability we may need to make the occasional substitution of the more minor pack components. If so, we’ll always ensure suitability/equivalence and we’ll always clear any significant changes with you in advance.

How to Play

All the instruments in the music baskets are visually fascinating, highly tactile and stimulate both the senses and the imagination. They’re also ‘pick-up-and-play’ and don’t really need any major instruction – but if you need some pointers, do have a look at the video clips on the relevant pages elsewhere on the website.


We work with a small number of specialist logistic companies to deliver your order quickly and economically. The delivery method varies, depending on your location and the size of the order, as follows:

UK Locations

Orders up to 5kg – Courier 2 to 3 working day delivery. This would typically include books, smaller instruments, percussion baskets and djembes up to 40cm.

Orders over 5kg – Courier, next working day delivery. Most orders are sent this way.

Large orders – Pallet service, 3 to 5 working day delivery. Used for large orders and those with more fragile contents.

Please note:

  1. Above timings are from dispatch date. Time from placing your order will usually be one or two days longer, depending on the order and destination.
  2. Delivery to offshore or Highland addresses may take longer and may cost more than to UK mainland addresses and we’ll quote and agree the costs with you in advance. Please note that in these cases it’s fine to go ahead and place your order, and there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you.
  3. For some destinations, where a courier service isn’t available, we may send by Royal Mail instead.

International Locations

Orders weighing less than 1kg and not too bulky – Post Office Airmail. This would include books and smaller percussion instruments.

Orders weighing more than about 1kg and large orders – international courier or pallet service. We’ll obtain competitive quotes and agree these with you in advance.

Please note that it’s fine to go ahead and place your international order prior to confirming shipping costs, and that there’s no obligation on your part until the delivery costs have been quoted and accepted by you. Payment for international orders, including shipping costs, is required before dispatch of the goods.


Please let us know straight away if anything arrives damaged or otherwise in a substandard condition and we’ll be happy to replace it, refund the cost or provide you with an alternative product to your satisfaction. Speed is of the essence here as most courier companies will only accept responsibility for damage in transit if the damage is reported within 24 hours of delivery.

 In the event of damage, please take photographs, including any damage to the packaging, and email these to us ASAP.

Similarly, if an instrument  develops a fault within 12 months of purchase in the course of normal use (though excluding fair wear and tear), please let us know, and we’ll replace it or refund the cost. It’s also very helpful for us to see photos of the issue as this gives us solid information for changing the design, the production method or the packing materials.

But please do contact us before returning any damaged or substandard items. Once we’ve approved their return, please send to:  Drums for Schools Limited, 21 Shaftesbury Avenue, Burton Joyce NG14 5GL 

We really appreciate your feedback in the case of faults (or if you think an instrument could be improved in any way) and we take all such feedback very seriously indeed.

1 review for World Music Basket – Large – 30 Instruments

  1. Emily Jones

    This arrived with all is contents and a stunning collection of instruments from around the world. My preschool class enjoy sharing, exploring and experimenting sounds and learning about where each instrument originates from. Great value. Highley recommend for small group exploratory to then lead into whole class music eventually.

      Many thanks for posting Emily – that’s great to hear and it’s exactly how we’d hoped and envisaged the basket would be used!!! Do let us know if you have any questions as you go.
