Key highlights during the Music & Sound Class

What is sound? One of the first lessons the students got was an introduction in what sound is and how it travels. One of the exercises was for one student to shout “PAH!” repeatedly and another to walk around with one ear closed to hear the reflections of the sound.

Microphone sensitivity ; The second lesson was about microphones and how they respond to sound. To visualize this in a clear way the students got an exercise in which they listened to different types of microphones through headphones and had to make a note of where the other student, who was walking around talking, sounded like he had walked out of the microphones sensitivity pattern.

Microphone patterns: This picture was taken during the same exercise about microphone sensitivity and shows the difference between the two microphones used thus far. The yellow string is the first microphone they listened to (a shotgun microphone) and the green string of the microphone pictured (a microphone with a carded pattern) The exercise was to explain the students about the difference between microphones and in what type of situation you may choose the appropriate set..
