The University of North Texas in Denton has a well respected lecture/lab
course in musical acoustics. I have used some of the experiments in the lab
manual "Surfing the waves of Musical Acoustics" by Russell F. Pinizzotto.
The experiments in the lab manual are: 1. The Elements of Sound Waves, 2.
The Simple Harmonic Oscillator, 3. Vibration Modes, 4. Loudness, Frequency,
and Human Hearing, 5. Reverberation Time, 6. Strings, 7. Pipes and Air
Columns, 8. Vibration Recipes, 9. The Human Voice, 10. Synthesizers,
Computers, and MIDI Madness.
