The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science Summer Enrichment camp proves that music isn’t all notes! It’s math too!

“Music and Math Rocks!” Is a class offered at the MSMS Summer Enrichment camp. It teaches rising 9th and 10th graders about the relationship between math and music. By using a new point of view, Mrs. Dawn Barham, shows the students how the fundamentals of music theory uses math and science as its basic foundation.

“We are taking math principals and applying them to instrument building. We are also exploring the correlations between music and math,” said Barham, Performing Arts Educator. “They’re so interconnected, and the students having figured that out pretty quickly.”
