More eye-catching than a recorder, lighter than a drum and easier to play than a xylophone - the new brightly colored, lightweight and smooth edged buzz makes music fun for early learners. Offering a truly authentic experience of a proper mouthpiece, the buzz has a range of 6 notes through its move-able slide. The slide positions are outlined by color, note name and also slide positions 1 - 6 so that children can learn in many ways, from traditional notation or the Chroma Note(TM) color system, to help aid understanding of pitch and varying length. Designed to widen the appeal of plastic instruments, and engage a brand new market the buzz is the latest innovative venture from Warwick Music Group. The Coventry-based team of British brass musicians’ successes to date include the world’s first plastic trombone, pone, which was closely followed by the pone Mini, and the award-winning trumpet. Research has shown that youngsters who have early exposure to musical instruments develop areas of the brain that relate to social, language and reasoning skills, as well as memory. The buzz can also help develop a child’s sensory and fine motor skills, encourage self-expression, stimulate imagination and creativity, build confidence and nurture their natural music talents.
