We’re turning things around! Instead of you sending us the question, this time we’re asking the question and looking to you for some answers. We wanted to explore why music moves us.
Sometimes it makes you feel like moving physically — wiggling, spinning, shaking and shimmying. And sometimes it moves you emotionally — makes you feel happiness or sadness or it brings back a strong memory.
But why does music make us feel all the feels? When you listen to music, it goes straight to your brain.
On this episode of But Why? pianist Annemieke McLane shows us the inner workings of a piano, and cellist Emily Taubl shows us how strings and stringed instruments make sounds. Plus we learn how record players make sound.
Listen to this episode of “But Why,” which is a podcast for kids. In this episode of But Why, we hear music from Music for Sprouts’ Mr. Chris, Drummer Seny Daffe, and cellist Emily Taubl and answer questions about strings, percussion, and the magic of music itself. Get ready to dance.
