When talking about music and instrument, I have the biggest heart for piano. Since piano is one of the instrument that I’ve learned to play I have always want to get better at it. My wish was being able to create my own piano that I can bring along with me and play songs. I did some research and found an interesting instrument call a Thumb piano that can be easily build right at home. The instrument included a box that can be build in many different sizes along with different sized metal pieces that are being held down by a stick. The instrument will produce sound when pressing down on the metal pieces then releasing it. Since the metal is being pressed down in able to produce sound, the metal piece is causing a sharp sound. Also the box is to is to so the metal please can bounce back and make the sound travel. The sound can be tune by how long our short the metal piece might be and how hard a piece of wood is pressing against it.
