Week 18: Homemade Musical Instruments Pt. 2
This week we created more homemade musical instruments, saw more examples of real instruments and talked about how they are different from the ones we made in class, and learned how our instruments make their sound.
The instrument we made this week were a xylophone made of different wooden bars as the note bars and sound board, and we also made a cool percussion instrument called the Styrokalimba with bobby pins and a styrofoam cooler. Cool observations we heard this week were that the xylophone we made looked like an African balaphone and the styrokalimba looked like a… kalimba!
