Odds are good that you have been around the dinner table when someone produces a sound by rubbing their wet finger along the wine glass’s rim. Heck, in our family in can be a family event. This science tidbit is about vibration and resonance. (Here’s a link from The Learning Channel).
It’s been a while since my last handbell post, but this weekend we’re using a technique known as the singing bell. Similar to the fun we have with wine glasses, our handbell choir is using a 1″ dowel to rub around the handbell’s outer rim.
Enjoy this beautiful version from YouTube … and watch for the dowels.
