Tocar means to touch and also to play when referring to something that makes noise. Louis Armstrong tocaba la trompeta. Louis Armstrong used to play the trumpet. El maestro toca la campana. The teacher rings the bell. Alguien toca la puerta. Somebody is knocking at the door.
Agudo and Grave have multiple meanings also. Agudo means sharp when referring to an object, but high-pitched when referring to a sound. El silbato hace un sonido agudo. The whistle makes a high-pitched noise. Grave means serious when referring to a situation, but deep when referring to a sound. La campana hace un sonido grave. The bell makes a deep noise.
Do not use pito to refer to a whistle. Among Mexicans, it is a penis reference. Soplo el pitodoes not mean I blow the whistle. To refer to a whistle, we say silbato.
