S298: Musical Physics in Splash 2017 (Apr. 29, 2017)
This course will be a fun introduction to the basic physics governing how musical instruments work. I will teach you some basics of waves and demonstrate how these properties play out (no pun intended) in actual musical instruments. At the end, we'll make some instruments together.
