The sound of an instrument is its timbre.
The timbre of something is what makes a
particular sound unique from another
sound.
Example: a guitar has a different timbre than a
piano.
How do instruments make sounds?
Read page 68:
“Each instrument has its own special sound, or
timbre. To make a sound on most wind
instruments, the player blows air into the
instrument, causing the air to vibrate. The
string instrument’s sound is made by vibrating
strings. Sing this Italian song about six
instruments.”
The way an instrument makes sound affects its
timbre.
How do instruments make sounds?
Clarinet, oboe, bassoon and saxophone:
Reeds vibrate and create the sound.
Flute:
Air blown through the tone hole vibrates.
Strings:
Vibrate when plucked, strummed, or bowed.
Percussion:
Instruments are struck so they vibrate.
