The Challenge: Make musical instruments
Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
If producing a
note is so simple, why do the sounds made by each instrument in an orchestra
or band sound so different?
The pitch is the degree
of highness or lowness of a musical note. The pitch depends on how rapid
the vibrations are; i.e., how high the frequency is. A higher pitch has
a higher frequency.
The diverse sounds
made by the instruments in each section of an orchestra are due to harmonics.
These are higher and quieter sounds that are mixed in with the main
note. They are not heard separately but add to the tone
of the sound.
