Zendri, G.; Valdan, M.; Gratton, L. M.; Oss, S. – Physics Education, 2015
Wind musical instruments are affected in their intonation by temperature. We show how to account for these effects in a simple experiment, and provide results in languages accessible to both physics and music professionals.

LoPresto, Michael C. – Physics Education, 2012
What follows are several investigations involving string musical instruments developed for and used in a "Science of Sound & Light" course. The experiments make use of a guitar, orchestral string instruments and data collection and graphing software. They are designed to provide students with concrete examples of how mathematical formulae, when…

Forinash, Kyle; Dixon, Cory L. – Physics Teacher, 2014
The effects of inhaled helium on the human voice were investigated in a recent article in "The Physics Teacher." As mentioned in that article, demonstrations of the effect are a popular classroom activity. If the number of YouTube videos is any indication, the effects of sulfur hexafluoride on the human voice are equally popular.…

Williams, David A. – Music Educators Journal, 2014
This article looks at the iPad's role as a musical instrument through the lens of a live performance ensemble that performs primarily on iPads. It also offers an overview of a pedagogical model used by this ensemble, which emphasizes musician autonomy in small groups, where music is learned primarily through aural means and concerts are…

Harder-Viddal, Candice – Physics Teacher, 2019
There have been many recent articles in this journal highlighting simple demonstrations of a wide variety of acoustic phenomena. In introductory physics courses, sound waves and their propagation through air, and resonance in musical instruments, are covered in detail. However, attention is not usually paid to the active role that our ears play in…

Briscoe, Diane – Music Educators Journal, 2016
Factors that determine the rate of a child's progress on a musical instrument include the quality, quantity, and regularity of home practice. Because a young pupil sometimes lacks the skills necessary to practice independently at times, music teachers could encourage and motivate parents/guardians to participate more fully in their child's music…

Nathan, Linda F. – Educational Leadership, 2018
Accomplished arts educator Linda F. Nathan profiles Conservatory Lab Charter School in Boston, a PreK-8 school that specializes in music education. In addition to academic coursework, Conservatory Lab students--many of whom are from low-income, minority families--learn musical instruments, play in ensembles, and compose and conduct music. Nathan…

Chen, Yuanzhu; Klaus, Alan; Liang, Yeni; Zhang, Chen – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2018
Learning musical instruments requires a significant amount of independent, unsupervised effort by students in the current post-secondary pedagogical context. A vital role of the teacher is therefore to help a student improve at the art of independent practice. The theory of contextual interference in skills learning has demonstrated better…

Swigert-Gacheru, Margaretta – Parenting for High Potential, 2018
Kenyan parents want their children to have an education that will maximize their full potential, and they are prepared to make tremendous sacrifices to ensure their children get that education. However, the best schools cost far more than most families can afford, and even the most humble local schools require parents to pay for school fees,…

Quardokus, Rebecca C.; Wasio, Natalie A.; Kandel, S. Alex – Journal of Chemical Education, 2014
A model scanning probe microscope, designed using similar principles of operation to research instruments, is described. Proximity sensing is done using a capacitance probe, and a mechanical linkage is used to scan this probe across surfaces. The signal is transduced as an audio tone using a heterodyne detection circuit analogous to that used in…

Loughran, Melissa – Primary Science, 2017
The challenge schools face when creating a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) program is how to incorporate the "E" into the curriculum. The author's school was meeting the National (U. K.) Curriculum Science, Technology and Maths learning objectives, so how could they justify adding another subject into the mix…

Whitener, John L.; Shu, Feiqun – Music Educators Journal, 2018
This article highlights one music educator's belief that it has become incumbent upon music teachers to expand their knowledge and understanding of global musical practices, traditional instruments, and cultural traditions, and they need to pass this knowledge on to their students. Experiences traveling and attempting to experience the music from…

Brazzle, Bob – Physics Teacher, 2011
My unit on sound and waves is embedded within a long-term project in which my high school students construct a musical instrument out of common materials. The unit culminates with a performance assessment: students play the first four measures of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow"--chosen because of the octave interval of the first two notes--in the key…

Upitis, Rena; Boese, Karen; Abrami, Philip C. – International Association for Development of the Information Society, 2015
The Digital Resource Exchange About Music (DREAM) is an online tool for exchanging information about digital learning tools for music education. DREAM was designed by our team to encourage music teachers to learn about digital resources related to learning to play a musical instrument, both in classroom and independent music studio settings. In…

Yi, Xiaoming – International Journal of Music Education, 2017
This article initiates a dialogue between Chinese "Gu Qin" art and curriculum theory. "Gu Qin" is the ancient Chinese musical instrument which best embodies Chinese aesthetic notions. The ancient Chinese never regarded "Gu Qin" as only an instrument; they thought that performing on it was a process of experiencing…
