    Hey there Lady,
    I think this is a really great idea for working with kids and people of special concerns. What a great instrument to add to a band where instruments might be damaged or otherwise too costly to use with particular groups of people. Combined with other less needy players and their instruments is often fun too, like Church Choirs. Nice job Lady, Thanks for the effort and fun. Play on. In Christ, Dorien
