This week, you will be listen to FOUR videos to the right. As you listen, you should think about how the timbre (the tone color) and pitch (highness/lowness) of the instruments are different. Which one creates the highest sounds? Which one creates the lowest sounds?
Here are some good timbre words:light or heavy; dark or bright; breathy; punchy; clear; focussed or unfocussed; piercing; harsh; warm; mellow; resonant; flat; vibrato (do you hear it vibrating?) or no vibrato
Write four sentences: One sentence about each instruments that describes how it is uniquely different than the other three.
You WILL be graded on your spelling, punctuation, and use of complete sentences. Each sentence will be worth 25 points for a total of 100 points.
Please write and submit your post for this assignment by Monday, September 14 for full credit.
