Metallophones

Metallophones are a percussion instrument. We carry both the Suzuki and Emus brand of metallophone, specifically for use in the Orff Shulwerk method of musical instruction. The boxes are solidly constructed and are fitted with perfectly tuned aluminum bars. Bar storage, damper bars and two pairs of mallets are standard on all the metallophones Empire offers.

Metallophones are available in soprano, alto and bass sizes. The Orff Shulwerk programme focuses on the diatonic scale but chromatic add-ons for all instruments are also available.

The larger bars on the instrument make a lower sound than the smaller bars, this gives children a conceptual idea of the notes going from low to high. Young learners can identify which sounds come from which size of bar, which helps to recognize different notes. Metallophones have an appealing layout that is easy for a child to understand. They encourage players to master hand-eye coordination for optimal sound, and allow the student to match simple playable patterns.

The metallophones we carry are well accepted across Canada. Empire Music is the exclusive distributor of Suzuki Metallophones and Emus Metallophones in Canada. These instruments are very durable and will stand up to the wear and tear of daily use from children and classrooms. The boxes carry a full 1-year warranty, the bars 5-years. We carry a complete selection of replacement parts and spare bars.

If you would like to purchase a metallophone for your Orff classroom, please take a look at the following models and purchase yours online. If you would like more information on setting up an Orff programme or have any questions or concerns, please contact us directly.
