        Pitch: Straw Kazoo

        In this video segment adapted from ZOOM, two cast members make a simple musical instrument from a straw. Through their exploration, they discover that pitch--how high or low a sound seems--can be altered by simply shortening the straw. This demonstrates the direct relationship between pitch and the amount of vibrating air contained in a musical instrument.
