Today we're going to make a musical instrument, the pan flute. Let's find out what a pan flute is.
The pan flute or pan pipe is an ancient musical instrument based on a principle of the closed tube, consisting usually of five or more pipes of gradually increasing length (and at times, girth).
The pan flute has long been popular as a folk intrument in Peru and Bolivia, and is considered the first mouth organ, ancestor of both the pipe organ ant the harmonica. The pan flute is named for its association with the Greek god Pan. The pipes of the pan flute are typically made for bamboo or giant cane; other materials used include wood, plastic metal and ivory.
So now we can start.
Let's first see what we need:
- two pieces of cardboard
- paint or something else to color it.
When you have gathered all these things, let's get started.
Put glew on one piece of the cardboard and stick the straws to it.
Now you have to wait a little till the gluw is dried up
Have much fun making your own pan flute!
