PIPE CHIMES FOR MUSIC….CHRISTMAS AND OTHER EVENTS

 

 

 

Pattern for musical pipes:  obtain two 10-foot lengths of inch galvanized conduit pipe.  Cut pipe to exact measurements (1/8” off will change pitch).  Drill hole for string 1-1.5 inches from top.  Build frame to hold them or hold them in your hand dangled from a string.  Ring them with a spoon or large nail hitting the pipes in the center.  Number each pipe at the top.  Place the numbers of the songs on large pieces of poster board.  The conductor points to the numbers with a long stick and keeps the pace and syncopation.  Each person plays their pipe when their number is touched.
