Abstract

JEANS'S great work on music is difficult for the ordinary physicist, if he knows nothing of music, and for the musician, not readily understandable, if he be unsympathetic to physics. There seems a moral to be drawn from it, however, that has been missed. It is, how can we make music simpler so that more people can play, anyhow to start with, the basic instrument—the piano.
