Outdoor Music Therapy

Underneath the Yalp Sona interactive dance & play arch

A shared location for interactive sports and play products is not just fun for all children and users of the product, but it also means multiple applications for a single product. The flexibility and advantages of an interactive don’t stop with the continuous updated and released content but extend to its use.

Tyltylcenter De Witte Vogel ‘The White Bird’ – The Hague, The Netherlands

The Yalp Sona Interactive dance and play arch at Tylyltylcentrum De Witte Vogel in The Hague is the ultimate example of a product used in multiple ways. The establishment focuses on education, revalidation, and the development of children with various (severe) disabilities between the ages of 0-20. The children can play here safely and supervised, learn in a fun way, or revalidate by performing exercises and listening to music.



Employee and music therapist, Sabine Dijksterhuis-van Zanten, gives music therapy classes at the Tyltylcenter. She makes the children move and sing along to songs she has written and created solely for this target group. This works perfectly because the songs have the right amount of tension since modern songs are often too complicated. They offered music therapy a few days a week, and we received the question if we could add Sabine’s songs to the Sona. From that moment, the Music Therapy game was created.

“The reactions are super positive! They see the children move to the music. Children from other groups that don’t know my songs enjoy the music as well. The Music Therapy game is a great addition to the Sona Arch. It’s something I hear from other employees here as well.”

As you can see in the user statistics, the music therapy game quickly became the number one played and most popular game on the Sona Arch. The other games are still being played as much. However, the diversity and the extra added value means more children can benefit from the knowledge and experience of the people working at this center.
