Originating from the same family as the pBone and the pTrumpet, the pBuzz is an exciting and easy new way to explore brass playing.
Through its extendable slide, you can alter the pitch by moving the bell over a range of 6 notes. Each note is marked prominently as a colour, number and notation to further the understanding of pitch and fluctuating length.
This plastic instrument offers a realistic experience of using a proper 'brass' mouthpiece and is easy to play for those who cannot read music. It would make a fantastic addition to any classroom and is suitable for children of all ages.
Step-by-step how to play
- Ask a grown up to remove all of the packaging
- Carefully insert the mouthpiece into the hole at the end of the instrument
Position the mouthpiece in the middle of your lips and then create a small hole with your lips whilst blowing out air. Gradually make the hole smaller as you blow to create a 'buzz'.
The moveable slide allows you to play six different notes: F, G, A, B, Bb, C (or 1-6)
MAKING A NOTE
Slide the bell towards you (make the instrument smaller) to create a high note, or slide it away from you (make the instrument longer) to create a lower note.
