Custruction of Instuments

Here are the instruments we made with Mr. Willis. It took a lot of persistence, patience and skills to make these complex instruments. These whistles consist of 3 main parts, the tube, body and plug. Each part has their own job. The body makes the whistle type sound. The plug is the part the helps change pitch and the tube consists of the mouth piece and connects the body.


  1. Toby - could you add your video of your playing your whistle.

  2. This is a wonderful visual that really enhances the writing that goes with it!

  3. Wow, can't wait to hear those instruments in action.

  4. Interesting presentation. I haven't seen Picturetrail before.

    It's great to see the instruments you made not just read about them. Maybe we could even get to hear you play them sometime!

    Well done Room 12. Keep up the good work on your blog.
