and Opinions

Have a look at the lovely things people have said about us:

Hello. My name is Shane Harvey, I am a HCPC registered Senior Music Therapist from Northern Ireland. In my clinical work I address the development of Children and Adolescents living with Visual Impairments, Physical Impairments and Complex Needs. I have not been compensated in any way for writing this review, and my opinions expressed on the Skoog's effectiveness are formed from over a year of using it in clinical practise.

I have seen children empowered by the music they have created on the Skoog.

In comparison to a lot of other music technology there's a much more intimate relationship between the way you physically interact with it as an object and the sounds you get out of it...

A fantastic product that shows real innovation and fun alongside it’s more serious educational benefits.

One of the easiest five stars we’ve given."

On her experience of using the Skoog with one particular pupil, Edinburgh based teacher Wendy Whyte writes:

When she plays the Skoog, she becomes graceful, confident and at ease with herself. It's wonderful to watch.

The Skoog removes the social and physical barriers that preclude people from becoming the best musician they can be.

This is more than just a sound making object, it’s a great way for young people to be introduced to making expressive sounds, and in time, music... The Skoog, though silly and fun loving on the outside, contains within it the serious potential to turn anyone into a musician and enjoy the satisfaction of musical expression.
