Connecting Science and Music #MusicMonday

NewImage

This article from the Kennedy Center’s Arts Edge is a great introduction to the science of sound. Be sure to check out the full article to learn more about the unique sounds of different instruments.

From The Kennedy Center’s Arts Edge:

What do science and music have in common? More than you might think.

In music, you can find real-life examples of concepts you might have learned in science class. And musicians can perform better thanks to the discoveries and understandings of science.

So let’s take a scientific—and fun—look at music.

Sound and Sound Waves

What is sound, anyway? Thanks to science, we know sound happens when an object vibrates (moves back and forth quickly). For example, when your finger plucks a string, the string vibrates and disturbs the air around it, making an invisible sound wave. You hear the sound when the wave travels through the air to your ear.
