For the xylophone, the sound is produced when the plates on the xylophone are hit with the stick being used. The impact causes a vibration between the objects which results in a sound. Of course these sounds, put together melodically, makes music. i think that to change the pitch of the xylophone I would have to change the size of each plate, or pipe, which should result in a different sound.

To create my xylophone, I will use those bronze colored pipes, a piece of wood to attach them to and something to hit them with. To make sure that I have a different pitch for each pipe, I will make then different sizes. The xylophone will be easy to play by using the stick (I haven't decided what I will use), and hopefully easy to make.
