We have prayer cymbals, small brass cymbals, finger cymbals and dance cymbals (manjira).

Our World In Tune tm program for world music (K-12), features authentic world instruments and presents an integrative curriculum with world music as the core. We are happy to present the music of the ancient civilizations, a study which has been given so little attention. The first of the World In Tune series covers just that area of music in the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Sumer/Babylon, China, India and Greece. The curriculum is being used in schools and home schooling in the US. World In Tune includes a monochord for the study of musical intervals. In this way students learn music theory by playing and listening to intervals on the monochord.
