This web site is a non-specialist's tutorial on the topic of music acoustics. It is organized so users can easily link to basic background information or highly specific information on strings, woodwinds, brass instruments, percussion, voice acoustics, and more. The resources were developed as part of a collaborative research project involving physicists, musicians, and engineers. Example topics include: standing waves and harmonics, open vs. closed pipes, violin and guitar acoustics, and an introduction to voice acoustics. Concepts are reinforced with multiple diagrams and animations.
