Making Strutes

What are strutes, you may ask? Well! They are little woodwind instruments made out of straws! A woodwind instrument is a musical instrument which requires air to create a sound. To make the strutes, we had to cut one end of the straw into a triangle. This created our mouth piece (with a reed). We then blew into the mouthpiece to create a sound!

We could  change the pitch by moving our fingers over little holes cut into the side of a straw. We could create a higher pitch by cutting a straw shorter, and a lower pitch by leaving the straw longer.

Here is Zaeeda's writing about creating Strutes.
