The IQ Plus thunder block is constructed of premium quality plastic making it ultra-durable. It is ideal for classrooms with small children as they can play as hard as they want and the instrument will not break. The ergonomically-designed handle made from environmentally-friendly rubber wood allows for added ease and comfort while playing. The instrument is easily played by striking the block with the wooden mallet to create a bright sound.
Ideally this instrument is used as part of a large group to keep the rhythm and beat. It can also be used to create accents within the music. The thunder block is an excellent instrument for young children to learn basic musical skills with as it requires minimal skill to be played. Similar to the claves, a beginner can quickly create a variety of rhythmic patterns without any prior musical experience.
