Shop Wooden Xylophones and Fiberglass Xylophones at West Music!
Part of the Orff family of musical instruments, the xylophone is easy to play for musicians of all ages and abilities. So it’s no surprise that you’ll often find xylophones in music classrooms and in bands, symphonies, and Orff ensembles. Each instrument features bars that are easy to remove and replace so students can learn music as well as the mechanics of the instrument.
The xylophone consists of one to four octaves of tuned bars arranged like piano keys. Made from wood, steel, or fiberglass, each instrument is tuned to one of four music scales: diatonic, chromatic, pentatonic, or heptatonic. Featuring one to two octaves, classroom xylophones are smaller than concert xylophones.
