Q:

What is a combination of sounds with distinct pitches and a specific pattern?

A:

Music is a combination of sounds with distinct pitches and a specific pattern. The pitches and unique pattern in a piece of music make a recognizable form known as a song.

Pitch refers to the highness or lowness of a note. Melody and harmony are elements of music that are related to pitch. Meter is an element of music that relates to pattern. Each musical piece is made up of beats that give the song its rhythm. Meter groups those beats into a rhythmic pattern made up of a combination of strong and weak beats as well as rests, or pauses in the sound. Dynamics are another part of a song's pattern. Dynamics are the pattern of loudness and softness of the different phrases in a song.

  • Q:

    How are sounds made?

    A:

    Sounds travel through waves, and these waves are made by vibrating an object, whether vocal cords or drums, according to the University of Rhode Island. Moving the object in one direction compresses the air in front of it. The pressure differences in the air move away from the object, creating sound waves.

    Loud sounds are sounds that are high in volume and soft sounds are those that are low in volume. Sound is a type of vibrating pressure that is transmitted in waves. The volume of a sound is directly determined by the amplitude of its sound waves, which is the height of a sound wave.
