                                          Bottle Flute

Find out how blowing into bottles can make musical notes.


You will need:


  • 5-6 glass bottles
  • A variety of food colouring
  • Water


  • Pour different amounts of water into each bottle.
  • Add food colouring and shake bottle gently to mix colour.
  • Rest the neck of one bottle on your lower lip.
  • Blow gently across the top until you hear a note.
  • If you can’t get a note change the angle or how hard you blow.
  • Blow gently across all the bottles in turn. 


Blowing makes the air inside the bottle vibrate producing a note.

The notes change according to the amount of water and air in the bottle.

The bigger the space between the water and the top of the bottle, the lower the note
