Kasia's Corner - DIY Water Glass Xylophone

Play some Christmas Carols in Your Kitchen! 

Recently, I came across a Youtube video where this man, Fin Draper, used water glasses filled up to different levels to produce a makeshift xylophone! Check it out for some inspiration before you start making your own glass xylophone as well! He also taped a drumstick to his foot so that when he stomped it sounded like a drum. What about you? What extra instruments can you add to your grand orchestra of one? (or even two- tell your family to join in!). As for me, I will be filling up a water bottle with some rice to make a DIY shaker!

When you do start filling up your glasses, notice how the different shapes of glasses and level of water affects the sound, or if you want to sound fancy, ~pitch~. What changes do you realise? Also, in Fin’s video, he used a fork, but, this man playing ‘Hallelujah’ only used his hands to create sound from his glasses. How do you think that works? Research it or try both versions out and see what happens!

In light of the festive season, try to recreate some of your favourite Christmas songs and impress your family! What? Still not convinced? What if I said you could gift your family with a beautifully unique glass xylophone Christmas carol instead of buying tangible Christmas presents? That’s right- all that money can now be invested into what it was meant to be used for: Christmas chocolate.

As always, pretty pretty please do send me a picture, video or even just a comment about your glass xylophone by email, as I would love to see what you made. Don’t be shy and send your song covers my way!

Happy Holidays in advance!

Kasia
