        Pitch: Water Trombone

        What can a drinking straw and a bottle full of water possibly tell us about how high and low notes are produced in musical instruments? In this segment adapted from ZOOM, a cast member demonstrates that the amount of air contained in an instrument determines the pitch of the sounds it makes. Try this for yourself! This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
