Interesting Facts About The Harp The harp is one of the world's oldest musical instruments, with evidence of its use dating as far back as 3000 B.C Harps are shaped much like bowsand it is thought that the first harp was based on the weapon Harp Sound and Pitch Connected to Classroom Learning In Experiments it was learned that the tighter a string is and the harder it is plucked the louder and higherthe pitch of the string of the instrument This knowledge obtained in the classroom was very helpful in understanding how the pitch of an instrument this is because the sound waves will have much more frequency in that the tighter the string and the harder the pluck of the string the more frequency and amplitude the sound wave gets making the harp sound become louder and higher pitched Reserch to back up the Sound and Pitch of a Harp The frequency from a vibrating wire is relative pure in other words, it primarily consists of one frequency this fact is used in tuning the musical instrument by adjusting the tension of the wire, the frequency can be changed slightly until it is exactly at some set pitch This reserch from an article in Encyclopedia Britannica (in bibliography) basically proves and shows that by plucking the wire and adjusting the tension as a result the frequency aka the sound and pitch that the instrument makes is altered in the wavelength this information about sound and pitch of a musical instrument applies to all instruments that invole a wire Hope You Learned Somthing About A Harp , Music, Sound, And pitch in this Infographic!!
