View Resource Talking about Sound and Music

Catherine Schmidt-Jones, in cooperation with the Connexions Project at Rice University, addresses the connection between musical instruments and the physics of sound in this site. Designed for an audience from middle school students to adults, users will find educational diagrams and explanations about physics terms such as pitch, frequency, and standing waves. This is an excellent resource for...

View Resource How to Build & Play a Theremin

Learn how to build a theremin in this free online video guide to electronic musical instruments, including the history of theremins, playing tips, and how to build your own. The theremin is one of the earliest fully electronic musical instruments, and is named after its inventor Leon Theremin. Designed to be played without being touched, the instrument consists of circuitry including two antennas...

View Resource How Humans Speak, Sing, Squeak and Squeal

The National Center for Voice and Speech developed this series of mini-courses and tutorials to assist people with difficult concepts in voice production. Intended for those who have taken a college level physics course, users can learn about many topics including frequencies, vocal fold oscillations, and pitch control. If it has been a few years since your last physics course, feel free to take...

View Resource Acoustics and Vibration Animations

Dan Russell, a professor of Applied Physics at Ketting University, created this site to provide students animated images of sounds and vibrations produced by instruments such as loudspeakers and guitars. The site is divided into three sections, which include: "Acoustics I: Sounds and Sources," "Acoustics II: Sound and Vibration," and "Other Wave Phenomena (not acoustics, but still waves)." This...

View Resource Physics of Music - Notes

This site was developed by the Phsics Department at Michigan Tech University. The focus of this site is on the physics of music and various instruments' physical properties. Visitors to the site can view amplitude, frequency, and time graphs of the clarinet, as well as information on musical scales, room acoustics, and white noise. Users can also learn how to construct their own Native...
