This paper will present how STEAM can be useful to better understand and to explore music. It will cover topics from mathematical modeling of sound, musical tone systems, statistical analysis of musical compositions, to exploring new styles of creating music using computing. These topics are chosen from an interdisciplinary general education science course on STEAM and music, which the author designed and taught for USC Upstate’s Honors program.
