Our Perspective

This 14” guiro is a good size for elementary and middle school students, especially grades 3 and up. It is easier than the 17” size for these students to hold.  A guiro is so handy for sound effects as well as a good percussion instrument for Latin American-style music.  -Kathy

Chosen for my best friend's son and also my unborn daughter. Rhythm is key to being good at music and this is a fun way to help them get the beat. :)

Was given a large fiberglass guiro - wanted a different sounding one to compliment it.

This is my go-to "scraper" when we learn about percussion instruments. The kids love how it looks--never fails to spark interest!
