It has been known since antiquity that there are simple “harmonic” relationships between notes that sound appealing together. 

This lecture introduces the mathematics of pitch, scales, and just temperament. The pitch of a sound is not its only important property. The same note, played on different instruments, can have a very different quality of sound. We will explore the mathematics governing the relationships between these qualities of sounds, and the shape and dimensions of the instruments used to produce them.

Cost: Free of Charge
