Welcome to Grade 5-Week 4 Music Activities
Hi Everyone! Besides playing, singing, and teaching music, another interest I have is experimenting with sound and the science part of music. I think it's fun to blow across the top of a bottle to make a sound and then add water to change the pitch. I have also tried getting a few drinking glasses and filling them to different levels with water and tapping on them with a spoon to create different pitches and then make up a song or play one I know. Rubber bands of different thicknesses stretched across a box, bowl or other open item can make really cool musical sounds too. I wonder if you have ever tried any of these "experiments" and what your results were.
