Skoog: a new kind of instrument designed for children with additional support needs

A short documentary piece on the Skoog, a new musical instrument. Specifically designed for children with additional support needs the Skoog is an innovative new resource for teachers and pupils alike.

The Skoog is a new musical instrument designed to empower those unable to play traditional instruments. The Skoog is a soft, squeezable object that simply plugs straight into your computer or laptop's USB port. By touching, pressing, squashing, twisting or tapping the Skoog you can play a wide range of instruments, intuitively.

The Skoog enables children to experience and play musical sounds for themselves. Designed specifically to meet the needs of anyone who cannot play a traditional musical instrument due to any combination of physical, mental or behavioural difficulties. The Skoog has been thoroughly road tested in special needs, music therapy and healthcare environments and has been widely praised, with highly positive feedback from staff and pupils alike.
