Qualified Horn

by Wayne K.

I used my Mom's trumpet mouthpiece, a piece of hose, and a funnel to make my instrument.

I would describe my instrument as a fun and easy way to make music. Horns were once used for all kinds of things like, hunting, to let other hunters know you found something, and in battles or wars to let soldiers know when to charge or that strangers are near. These are called signaling horns.

To get sound you must pinch your lips together and make them buzz. By pinching them loose you will get a low pitch, and by pinching them tight you will get a high pitch.

I hope you enjoyed the presentation!
