“I work in the SEND education sector and have been using SoundBops with pupils who have severe physical disability. It is honestly been a game changer as it has enabled pupils to be able to independently access and electronic musical instruments and alsohave the potential to perform the same music as their peers using Standard format keyboards.
The learning resources are also excellent and we have been amazed at the engagement that using this new technology has created in our students. The potential that we see in this technology is very far-reaching in terms of enabling pupils with disabilities to be able to access musical creativity and performance in a new way.
We are very much looking forward to using this technology further and are committed to understanding how it will benefit pupils with SEND.”
“I am in love with my Soundbops. It is simple and easy to respond to and immediately I can make music. Music, not noise! Playing a tune I recognised so quickly was a delight. I love the portability too. When using it with the children I feel like the Pied Piper, they all want to join the orchestra!!”
“I previously felt like I'd had a bad experience but I must shine light on how this was handled so professionally and now I have nothing but praise for this amazing teaching tool and the management has exceeded expectations”
“I purchased the complete product for use at home with my 4 year old son. We really enjoy the instrument, it’s a truly unique concept and a perfect introduction to reading music. The books are well written and perfectly targeted at young children. Soundbops customer services have been very attentive post purchase and have always responded to messages promptly.”
“Daughter is 4, she loves her soundbop, it's bright and colourful, easy to learn how to use and she wants to play with it and has maintained interest in it so I'm very impressed and I will be recommending to friends and family.”
“Customer service is first class. I had my2 queries re book and keys answered very efficiently and helpfully. The price is excellent for the product and every child should have one to introduce them to music.”
“The concept and the instrument is brilliant, and I like Book 1. However, I ordered books 2 and 3, and only received book 2! I have contacted you several times for an explanation, but have had no reply, so I am not impressed with the admin.!”
We are so glad you are enjoying your Soundbops! We are very sorry for the delay in getting your book 3 out. We had run out of stock in one of our warehouses and it had not updated.
We also want to apologise for the slow response. We are a very small team and sometimes it takes us longer to respond that it should.
We have sent you a Book 3 from our other warehouse and it will be with you tomorrow. We have also sent you a £10 Soundbops Gift card so that you can purchase Book 4 when it is released.
We are a very new company and thank you very much for purchasing Soundbops and helping us empower children to lean music.
“We got one this week 😀 and are loving playing around with the board, creating different sounds and working through book 1 🎶 super fast delivery, exceptional quality (we’ve dropped it already 🙄) and the kids the sticker progress chart”
“We are very happy with our Soundbops, it is a lovely thing for our little boy to play with. It’s an innovative idea and very rewarding for him. One problem though, for which I am docking a star is that the power is on a dial and it doesn’t auto turn off like all other kids toys. This means it basically never gets switched off. If this issue is resolved in future iterations then I would say it’s a must buy.”
We're sorry to be so long replying to you, but we wanted to test several Soundbops to be sure.
It should enter stand-by mode after 10 minutes, where all the functions are off and the LED turns from green to orange. It then needs to be switched off and on again to be played. If yours doesn't, there may be a fault, so please let us know and we'll replace it.
The Soundbops Team
“Having just received my Soundbops Starter kit and knowing full well that my newborn has a couple of years in ahead before she can fully utilise the kit means that I can practice to my heart's content and really become an adept teacher of Soundbops for when she is ready to learn.
All the while I'll be keeping a very close eye on any Soundbopular developments in order to keep up to date with 'bop' culture as I feel that Soundbops will greatly enhance her love for music and for her first foray into musicianship!”
“SoundBops make having music lessons accessible to our family. It is very easy to grab a metronome on the phone and have him figure out the book. We even talk about chords and feelings which will lead to storytelling through music. This wouldn't have even occured to me without this tool. Very excited to continue working with it! EXCELLENT customer service.”
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. We are so glad you're enjoying Book 1.
We have lots more to come in our Soundbops books and you've already beaten us to one of the lessons in Book 3 - Music and Emotions.
So glad you're finding ways to have beneficial discussions through music! Love the picture too.
“The stars are given for the build quality. Because of Covid we have not been able to use it with our grandchildren and we haven’t yet been able to get it to them.
We didn’t buy the starter set - when will we get the rest of the set, please?”
