How are Science and Music even related? Have you heard of S.T.E.M. or S.T.E.A.M.? We’ll explain it all below.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education is very popular these days. This education style combines the four subjects all together and integrates them into one seamless and congruent learning experience. Backed by the US Department of Education, it’s believed that STEM education will grow a workforce in careers related to STEM. Nowadays, the Arts have been added to this unique learning experience thus giving STEM its STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). So just how does this relate to music?
Music IS Science (and History, and Geography, and Art, and Language, and Social Studies, and Math, and more)! The frequency (Hz and kHz) of the human voice and instruments, the ratio of long tubes making low sounds versus short tubes making high sounds, and how sounds move through water versus air are just a few ways to show that Music is Science. Wouldn’t it be cool to find an explanation for the “whys” and “hows” behind music making?
Over the course of three days, students will use the Scientific Method to formulate a hypothesis and then conduct a super fun experiment (or two) to test that hypothesis. Can we see sound? What are sound waves? How do pianos work?
What’s included? What’s required?
Included in the Science of Music Workshop are a cool t-shirt that says “I made sound waves at the Science of Music Workshop at Kenya’s Keys Voice & Piano Studio” and a tote bag full of goodies. Snacks will also be provided daily. If there are any allergen or dietary concerns, please let us know on the online registration form. We want to ensure the safety and care of all in attendance.
In order to reserve your seat at the Science of Music Workshop, a $30 non-refundable deposit will be collected at the time of your registration. On the online registration form, you will be asked to indicate which days your child will be attending (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, All 3 Days). Remember the Science of Music Workshop will take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, March 12-14, from 9 AM-12 PM. Once you complete the online registration form, an invoice for the remaining balance will be emailed to you at the email address you registered with. All balances are due in full by March 1, 2018.
