The Season of Chimes

by Trisha

My instrument is called the Season of Chimes. My Mom helped me on it. She had the pots and the stick. My Mom gave me these paint markers. So I made most of the seasons on it. She also gave me some of that stick string to tie the knots in it. The bigger the pot is the bigger the knot has to be. When I was done I had to tie the string to the stick. Then I had to paint over what I made on the pots. It took me a day. That's because the paint marker dries fast. I had to rewrite my report.

Then I tested the pitch. I also tested the dynamics. To make it soft I hit it soft. When I hit it hard it's loud. You can't change the pitch…but each pot has a different pitch.
