Heather's Chimes

My dad helped me make this instrument.  First my dad and I went to the hardware store and bought pipe.  My dad showed me how to cut the pipe and I did the rest.  Then my dad and I cut two boards.  One was 32 in. long the other one was 30 in. long.  My dad and I used four dowels to hold the top board up.  Then me and my dad glued them together.

My dad and I put hoops in for the chimes to hang from.  I painted it.  I painted flowers.  It took four days to finish.

To change pitch you hit the different sized chimes.  Dynamics are when you hit it hard or soft.  The timbre sounds airy to me.
