A simple, easy to navigate website specialising in offering quality baby and young children's percussion instruments was created, targeting parents, carers and educators living and working with children from 3mths+. There are no minimum orders or high prices, thus opening up the market to those wishing to spend as little as £1.99. Bulk orders are also discounted. These colourful and robust instruments are all tune, and together with attractive packaging and at affordable prices it is hoped that more parents will turn to buying musical gifts for their babies and young children. The ongoing success is dependent on word of mouth and consistant affordable prices.

The musiculum allows teachers to customise CDs and choose a variety of songs to suit their program. The songs are grouped under subject headings and graded for difficulty. They harness the power of rhythm, rhyme and melody to carry information deep into the memory. Songs range from the challenging (Macbeth/Odysseus), the surreal (Ob Snaosaig - an OS map poem using only place-names), the spiritual (Be Kind To Yourself), the silly (Never shake a shaker at a shaking sheikh), the simple (to and fro) to the mainstream (winter etc). Songs that aren't available in the musiculum are ordered in the balladarium and then become available to everyone in the library.


Through targeted sponsorship the Arkade is supporting live music events that provide experience for young musicians.
