The pBuzz plastic instrument is based on a very simple version of the trombone – an authentic mouthpiece and the sliding arm to change the pitch. It is however colourful, light, inexpensive and fun to get students started on the road to brass playing.
The pBuzz plastic instrument offers a truly authentic experience of a proper mouthpiece. It has a range of 6 notes through its moveable slide. The slide positions are outlined by colour, note name (i.e. F, G, A, B, Bb, C) and also slide position from 1 to 6. The colour scheme ties in with any other instruments using the Orff system. Children can learn by many ways with pBuzz including note, slide position and colour to aid the understanding of pitch and varying length.
Suitable for children of all ages, but especially from as young as 3 or 4 years old as part of your EYFS provision, the pBuzz works as a perfect addition in the classroom to recorders, chime bars, and hand percussion.
