Science of Sound 

Performance  

Buffalo and Brandy’s “Science of Sound” performance combines a live, electronic, and acoustic musical performance with student participation and interaction.  In addition to including important Character Education content (respect, responsibility, and caring) in this performance, it also aligns with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) protocol .  Our live performance adds the Arts to this acronym (STEAM).  Imagine music being played on our banana piano – which explains circuits and how they work - or our Theremini (the oldest electronic instrument that one never touches to play) - which demonstrates radio waves and how they are used to control electronic instruments.  Our performance combines our art forms of music, magic, and singing - thus bringing the concept of the “Science of Sound” alive for students in this fun, engaging performance.

Great for schools and/or libraries!
