Make a String Instrument


Making a Harp 

  • The harp is a STRING INSTRUMENT. 
  • The strings (rubber bands) VIBRATE (move back and forth quickly) as the instrument is plucked.
  • The tighter the strings (rubber bands) the higher the note. 
  • The looser the strings, the lower the note.








Materials

  • baking pan, baking tin, box, or other open top container
  • 5 - 8 rubber bands

Directions

  • Place the rubber bands around the pan spacing them evenly.
  • Tighten or loosen some of the strings (rubber bands) to change the pitch.
  • Pluck the strings to make them vibrate.
  • Try to tune the rubber bands so that you can make a musical scale.

Other string instruments: guitar, violin, banjo
