Which Instrument?

Which instrument? is a listening game which helps students focus on timbre (how things sound).

  • Show students the two minute video below.
  • Discuss the sounds and how they are made.
  • Ask students to sit in a circle. One student is in the middle and they are ‘it’. ‘It’ must close their eyes listen to one of the instrument sounds (use the toggle on the video to allow a specific instrumental sound to be heard).
  • If the student guesses correctly they select another student in the circle to take their place.
