ASSIGNMENT:

Make an instrument that will play a PENTATONIC (5-tone) scale. You may tap on glass and use water to change the pitches or use your finger to wipe the rim and get the glass to vibrate that way. If you prefer, you can make a 5-tone “pipe” from straws.

The five-tone scale should be DO RE MI SOL LA (you can use CDEGA or GABDE or FGACD)

How many songs can this guy play using a pentatonic scale?

Buckets "YUCK" Peter and the Wolf "Peter and the Wolf" is a children's story with music, composed by Sergei Prokofiev in 1936. It was written to entertain children while also educating them about families of instruments of the orchestra. Some scholars believe the piece is also an allegory about the political situation of the Soviet Union in the 1930s, with characters representing various bickering Soviet republics, Peter being namedξfor Peter the Great, and the wolf representing anti-Community Nazi Germany. Regardless of its meaning, there is a very good chance you have heard and will continue to hear parts of "Peter and the Wolf" in many settings, and also that, should you become a parent, your children will hear it too. To begin our study of instruments of the orchestra, we are watching FOUR versions of "Peter and the Wolf," and will compare them.
