The main purpose of this book is to explain certain physical considerations useful not only to a beginner learning how to play a musical instrument, but also to an accomplished musician trying to gain full technical mastery of an instrument.
by David Lapp - Tufts University
The book covers the physics of waves, sound, music, and musical instruments at a high school physics level. A resource for those teaching or learning waves and sound from the middle school through college, at the mathematical or conceptual level.
by J. W. S. Rayleigh - MacMillan
One of the first books in the field of acoustics, written in a very logical manner, many topics are the research results of Lord Rayleigh himself. Any acoustician who wants to understand physical principles should start with Rayleighs work.
