This web site provides a series of tutorials and information pages on topics in musical acoustics. It is organized into sections on basic background information or more specific information on strings, woodwinds, brass instruments, percussion, voice acoustics, and more. The level of material ranges from basic concepts of sound level and frequency to details on sound production for researchers or musicians. 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.
