Weapons of Sound are an exciting teenage band. They have been very successful and have even played at the Royal Albert Hall. All their instruments are homemade from rubbish and include items such as an old kitchen sink, gas pipes, a shopping trolley and dustbins!

When conducting investigations on how sound is made and how sound is changed, children could explore different materials, shapes and size objects and its effect on sound. Pupils could be encouraged to use recycled materials to design and create their own instruments which are able to change pitch and sound. Children could then present their new instruments, explaining how they are able to change pitch and volume.
