Music teaching with recycled materials
About Lesson

I’ll show you how to make a pan-flute. You can actually make music by blowing on straws. The different lengths of the straws make different tones.

You’ll need

  • 16 straws,
  • Sticky tape,
  • scissors and
  • colored tape.

Cut the straws to different lengths in groups of two.

Then cut a long piece of sticky tape and place the straws on the sticky side, arranging them from the shortest to longest.

Secure in place with additional tape.

Let’s hear how the singing straws sound like. I think you’ll enjoy making this. Good bye!
