  • Lowry's musical instruments (Mrs Crooks)

    As Lowry have been looking at Science and Inventions this half term, we investigated how different musical instruments make their sounds. We looked at different instruments of the orchestra, and Alice, Cameron and Margaux kindly played their instruments to show us how they work. Then we set about designing and making our own instruments.

    Our instruments had to be able to play more than one pitch, and belong to either the string, percussion or wind instrument families.

    We then composed some music together, and decided which instruments sounded best playing at the same time by considering their timbre.

    Mia found that by putting tubs inside her instrument it made it much louder - great thinking Mia!
