To portray the rattle of the skeleton’s bones, the composer used the xylophone.

What does the xylophone look like?

The xylophone is a percussion instrument and is struck with hammers.

It consists of a series of oblong wooden blocks of different sizes.

Now paste in (or draw) a picture of a xylophone .

How is sound produced on the xylophone?

The wooden blocks are struck with hammers to produce sound.

Different hammers are used for different timbres, e.g. wood, rubber and felt.

The shorter and thicker the wooden blocks, the higher the sound; the longer and thinner the blocks, the lower the sound.

THE PITCH: The notes of the xylophone are relatively high.

  • Choose the animal which is represented by the music and complete the rest of the table.
