I bought this Xylophone and Recorder Set for my preschooler (it made a really nice
Christmas present) and she really likes it. I was very pleased with the quality of
these instruments. I think both the xylophone and the recorder are great beginner
instruments for children, and the music book uses both letters AND colors for showing
which notes to play on the xylophone, so even really young children can learn to
follow along and play the different songs even without being able to “read music”.
