Play A Piano using your mouse or keyboard, read the notes on the musical score as it plays for you, see the wave forms as you play a tune. Multimedia madness : mixing math & music -- create, see & hear wave forms. Control the decay and choose between the pure tone of a sine wave or the richer sound of a wave with overtones : your virtual vibrating piano string. Fun & educational. Java 1.0.2, requires speakers and a ""sound card""; Midi is NOT required.
I really did not find much value in using this site. There was to much of a delay and the sound was not clear. Maybe someone who is fascinated with science and music, might get some use from this site. The Jingle Bells song that you are suppose to be able to play did not even sound correct during some parts. You can make the wave form, frequency, and fade change. You can here the difference and see the actual wave form change. I would not recommend this site to band directors.
This site takes time to load. When you click on the keys of the piano keyboard there is a delay, as well as when you use the computer keyboard to play the piano keyboard. You are suppose to be able to change songs and then play them, but I was unable to get it to change songs.

Not really much use in a physics course, but still this is a clever applet. On Netscape (NT) some of the controls acted a little rough.
