DIY Electric Guitar

The DIY Electric Guitar is a collaboration between Helen Leigh and Phoenix Perry. It is a DIY kit that introduces students to the beautiful physics behind music. They make a one string electric guitar and learn about waves, frequencies, resonance, oscillation, and get an introduction to the science of music theory.

The DIY Electric Guitar includes over three hours of lesson plans for Physics with worksheets, diagrams, teacher notes and curriculum links. Our teaching resources were written by a team of scientists, musicians and award-winning educational authors. The DIY Electric Guitar has been taught at schools and festivals across Europe.

If you want to host a workshop or find out how to teach the Science of Music at your event or in your classroom, please get in touch to see how we can work together.
