My husband thinks our youngest would enjoy playing the xylophone. Her violin efforts are progressing but he thinks that learning a new instrument such as the xylophone would hold her interest better. She is a very active girl and there is a wide range of Orff instruments and accessories that we can choose from. Our youngest is a very active girl and my husband feels that the violin is a bit to “mundane” for her and that she would find it more it more interesting to get learn an instrument that she can “bang” on. He reminded me that one of her favorite toys as a toddler was a toy piano. In his mind it is logical for her to like the xylphone.
