Music lesson 3

This weeks music lesson looked at unusual musical instruments from around the world.

Her is a leaf flute that comes from Australia. All you need is a gum leaf and blow across it.

A bagpipe that comes from Scotland. Did you know that there are also bagpipes in Spain? A bagpipe is a big bag with pipes sticking out of it and you blow into one pipe with holes  and a reed in it and you squeeze he bag to keep the noise going.

And a bird box that comes from Switzerland.  We went to a musical museum this week and saw one working. It was amazing. 

I would also recommend watching this Video to see how it works and what it sounds like.
