The Prodigies C Major Deskbells are of the highest quality and use the Chroma-Notes™ colors that match our curriculum and the famous Boomwhackers.
Frequently Asked Questions
What color scheme are the bells?
The bells match the Boomwhackers color scheme called “Chroma-Notes” – the same color system we use throughout all of Prodigies! These colors are Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Teal, Purple, Pink and Red.
What Do I Do if One of my Bells Breaks?
If you received a set of bells and one is broken, let us know! We will ship you a replacement bell ASAP.
Our bells are also back by a 2 year, 3 bell replacement policy, so we can send you free replacements within the US if something happens to one of your bells!
The bells are petty durable and kid-resistant, but alas, they’re not totally kid-proof. If you pull really hard on the top spring piece, you can break the seal that holds the spring and the lever in place. Sometimes, a well-placed drop of super-glue can fix this, depending on how it broke exactly.
How Many Bells Should I Get?
In most cases, you’ll want every child participating in the program to have their own set of bells.
In both the classroom and at home, having a set for each child is a massive advantage. They can fully participate in every song and they’ll (hopefully) take more ownership over “my bells.” It also helps minimize competition for the bells amongst siblings.
That said, you certainly can split the bells up among two players to create a more duet type scenario. Many of the more difficult lessons suggest this anyway (i.e. each person takes 4 bells).
The problem is really in the earlier lessons where we focus on one, two or three notes, which happens in the majority of Chapters 1-5. In these lessons, many families who only have one set, end up having two kids participate but with different (aka the wrong) notes. This greatly diminishes the effectiveness of the ear training and the guided musical play that’s supposed to be taking place.
