Great tool for percussion sessions using no or few drums with seniors and children !!

My music therapy clients (older adults in healthcare) expressed enjoyment of the ocean drum sound. I wanted a smaller version for those who felt the large one was too heavy, and think the fish print will help facilitate reminiscence and further sensory stimulation.

How do you use this in hospice? I work with older adults mostly. Thanks.

Best Answer: Hi Shoshana,

Although I do not work in Hospice, I have experience working with the ocean drum with both older adults and with adults who have depression, anxiety, etc.

I personally do not use the mallet when I work with the drum. It can be a very soothing sensory instrument and typically captures the visual and auditory attention of the person who gently moves the drum (the beads roll in patterns that are interesting to watch and can be very relaxing). If they have it on their lap, there is a pleasant tactile vibration as well. This can be done together as well. I have run into a few clients who found the sound grating, but the overwhelming majority ask where they could get one. For a hospice setting, I think that it would be useful for relaxation techniques, gentle improvisation, or simply using the instrument to bring a client into the here and now.

Hope that helps!

Is there much sound difference with the smaller size? I used the 16 inch and loved it, but the smaller one would be easier.

Best Answer: There isn't a huge difference between the smaller and the bigger one. The bigger one does get a bit louder and projects more, but the smaller one is great and is much easier to handle.
