New Science Integration Workshops

Rhythm Enhances Academic Learning (REAL)
Rhythm Enhances Academic Learning (REAL)

Thank you so much for your support of our math and science music integration program!  

As of October 2011, MUST has been collaborating with the San Francisco Unified School District Mission Science Workshop to offer two open workshops in instrument-building. This is a natural intersection of the musical field of organology (instruments) with physics of sound, coupled with mechanical design. The workshops are open to both teachers and community members, who will design instruments that demonstrate the physics of vibrating strings, as well as instruments based on their discovery of ways to make sound, similar to woodwinds, brass instruments, and many kinds of percussion.  

In March and April of 2012, MUST will partner with public television station KQED and the Chrissy Field Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy to offer two open workshops based on the 21st Century Toolkit Skill of Aesthetic Education.  The MUST facilitator will help them create a sound collage using computer software (such as GarageBand), combining their own field recordings, recordings of interviews or writings about the site, and cultural music important to the history of the site. The different tracks of music and sound recall the layers/strata of geologic time that make a landscape.
