This is an excellent site to see how physics and music are related.  It is very detailed and gives many examples. If someone is studying sound, it is a wonderful site to see demonstrations, including the mathematics and science behind sound. It is an excellent resource for anyone studying engineering, as well as music.

Technical Remarks:

This site does a wonderful job by using video, simulations and interactive exercises. 

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes.
