Practice beads - Felt balls - Music Practice Educational
2cm- standard sets come with 10 balls, but I can tailor make or provide you with the string - any colour combination and any length!

My daughter and her friends use these practice balls for motivation instead of counting 1-10.
Hang them from your music stand, a hook on the wall or even your instrument. Attach them to your case so you never accidentally swap.

My daughter needed to do repetitions and would lose count, and this practical tactile exercise made practice enjoyable rather than a chore. The extrinsic motivation of moving the balls down the string is such a pleasure to see.

Our teacher wanted to get a set made up for her Sistema (charitable music program for underprivileged kids), and the only way to do this cost effectively was to buy several thousand balls. Now I'm selling the balance to offset the cost and to share the joy and creativity they have inspired.

These were such a success at our Suzuki summer camps and we had great feedback from many teachers who bought sets for their studios.

Design your own using the colour chart or pick one of our fabulous designs.

DIY also available - but add an extra $1.50 for the wool needle.
