Music appreciation is one of the art experiences introduced to pre-schoolers. Music is perceived as one of the best tools to be integrated into the teaching of other subjects across the curriculum in early childhood education. This study aims to understand the use of the SCAMPER technique as a guide for teachers in helping them create a developmentally appropriate musical instrument to aid in their teaching. This study applies the use of SCAMPER technique which is one of the idea generation techniques widely used in the design discipline. Sixteen students enrolled in an Early Childhood Education programme participated in this study. Six sets of musical instruments were developed and analysed for its design and practicality for use in pre-school classroom teaching. The study concludes with the discussion on the effectiveness and limitation of SCAMPER used in musical instrument design.
