Got soul? We did today as we started our last module for the semester on the Soul (Science) of Music. But what’s music, after all? We learned that it means something different for everyone, including animals. We learned about what the notes really mean using a computer program that we used later to tune our hand-built string/wind/percussion instruments.

Thank you, Mark Vermilyea and Christina Vasil from the GE Global Research Center for the great session! And thanks to our partner, Clarkson University Graduate School, for hosting us!
