SCI300
Physics and Psychoacoustics of Music
3 credits, 3 hours lecture/lab
An exploration of the mechanics and perception of music – from the energy that excites the vibrating object and the space through which its waves propagate, to the human ear and brain that experience it as music and reshape it through design.  Topics include: wave properties; sound production and timbre; acoustics and psychoacoustics; pitch, tuning and temperament; and music technology. Through an understanding of music from a scientific perspective, students work toward expanding and building on their experience and sensibilities as musicians. While incorporating some basic mathematics, this course focuses primarily on a conceptual understanding of complex phenomena.

The Word

“My experience at the Jazzschool Institute has been nothing short of magical every single day. The faculty, in addition to being the best players in their field, are also great teachers. They really demonstrate that they want the students to succeed in becoming the next generation of great players.”
