Clever Music Videos Of The Week

Clever Music Videos Of The Week

In an ongoing series, I’ll be sharing two or three of the clever music videos I come across each week. Enjoy!

Blue Man Group: Pipes

In this video, the Blue Man Group demonstrates how tubes of different length create different pitches. Useful when discussing how brass and woodwind instruments work.

Vi Hart: Pachelbel’s Music Box Canon

The brilliant Vi Hart allows us to visually see the structure of Pachelbel’s Canon in D when played by music boxes. Three music boxes play the same strip of paper in sequence to create the canon, while the basso continuo is played by a fourth music box playing a loop (literally!).
