As part of our Playlist topic, we have been designing a musical instrument suitable for use in a celebration band!
We began by observing a range of musical instruments and identifying the materials they are made from and how they make their sounds. We looked at whether the instruments were solid or hollow and whether they were tuned or untuned.
We considered how our own instrument would be carried and played, e.g. by plucking or beating, before drawing it, labelling it and writing out our equipment list.
We will be making the instruments next week and are excited to see how they turn out!
