Music for the Eyes

Joe Garofalo, C.P. Smith music teacher and captain in the Lyric Theater’s recent production of Titanic, kindly shares his room with me. Often, before the students arrive in the morning, we find ourselves discussing the math-music connection and how we might help bring this to life for students. Last week, Joe showed me some animated music he’d discovered. I had a hard time tearing myself away. See for yourself. Here is Johann Sebastian Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor  by a company called Musanim. Musanim says it will send a free DVD of these videos to public libraries and schools. We’ve got ours on order.
