How to Make Musical Instruments for Kids : How to Make Homemade Oboes with Straws
English English English - English Captions Hello I'm Annie Brunson on behalf of ExpertVillage. We are learning about making musical instruments out of everyday objects. Todaywe are going to learn how to make a oboe double reed. The first that you do is find a straw,then the other thing we are going to need are a pair of scissors. First thing you aregoing to do is flatten the end. It is not going to flatting all the way but just flattingit out a little bit. Then you are going to cut so it is a point on the end of the straw.So now you have a point on the end of the straw.So lets just see how this sounds without doing anything else to it. You are going to putit in your mouth and you are going to hold it light. You don't squeeze it to tightly,hold it, and you got a nice sound to it. Well not nice but a sound. So the next thing weare going to do is actually cut a couple of holes. So what you want to do is still keepit on the same side where the point is showing. We are going to make a little hole. Againjust a little tiny snip. So it is just a very little hole. You could see that then I'm goingto cut another little hole. Just a little bit further down. Again I'm using like littletiny triangles into the. Now I have two holes. So I'm going to put my fingers over thesetwo holes and I'm going to put the instrument in my mouth. You could make all kinds of funnoises from this just by wiggling your fingers over the open holes.
