Our History

Freenotes Harmony Park instruments were originally developed by Grammy Award-winning musician Richard Cooke in 1995. The idea came as a solution to the impediments of learning to play a traditional instrument and needing to read music. Cooke’s experience of learning to play the flute in an improvisational style without taking any lessons or reading music was so profound, he wanted to teach others how they might experience this freedom of playing music instinctively. So many barriers of time, cost and talent were in the way of public exposure to music that he decided to create outdoor instruments that sounded so beautiful that everyone who started to play wouldn’t want to stop.
