The Science of Music

by Cecilia Pinto McCarthy

Part of a Series: Super-Awesome Science.

Whether it’s the soulful sounds of a saxophone solo or the sharp rhythm of a rock band, the principles of acoustics allow us to enjoy the music we love. The Science of Music explores the science behind how we create, listen to, and react to different patterns of sound. Easy-to-read text and vivid images bring this subject to life. Features include a table of contents, fast facts, a glossary, additional resources, and an index.
