Bottle Scale

By Elizabeth



My instrument is called The Bottle Scale and it is in the woodwind family. It took four bottles as my main part of my instrument. I make the sound of my instrument by blowing into the bottles.

My instrument is made by first, taking empty pop bottles and filling them with different levels of water. Then, decorate them with stickers. Next, you take off the lids and blow over the top of the bottles and it will make a high or low pitch sound depending on which bottle you blow into.

The sound of my instrument can either be high or low pitch depending on which bottle you blow in. You can change volume by blowing harder or softer on the bottles.

I learned that there are many different ways to change the pitch and volume in your instrument. Making an instrument can be hard or easy depending on your idea. My favourite part was decorating the instrument because you get to be creative and express yourself through music.
