If you need to purchase a Xylophone or Desk Bell set to go with the Xylophone Fun Curriculum see our links below. Remember, this curriculum only works with these specific instruments, and will not work with any other colored xylophone or bells. You can use it with non-colored or mono-colored xylophone but you will not have the benefits of the matching of colors technique. A mono-colored xylophone (similar to the Orff xylophones) will have letter names which you can match. This curriculum is specifically color coordinated to be used with the Basic Beat Resonator Bells and desk bells. NOTE: For Xylophone Fun you need the Basic Beat 8-note Resonator Bells in the green case. The bars/bells are red, orange, yellow, green, aqua, blue, purple, and red. Update: Please see our updated resource page which shows other instruments that can be used with Xylophone Fun Curriculum.
