How radio waves are generated from oscillating charges, with a demo of a radio transmitter in the classroom.
Creating standing waves with first, second, and higher order harmonics by shaking a string up and down.
How wind instruments create sound using standing waves in the air, including a demonstration of a large pipe which creates sound after a copper grid in the pipe is heated and then cooled.
Using simple versions of a flute, trombone, and wind organ to demonstrate the way they produce different notes. Also a demonstration of a sounding board used to amplify the sound from a tuning fork and a music box.
Seeing the sound waves produced by a violin, clarinet, bassoon, and saxophone at the same frequency to show that each instrument combines harmonics in a different way to produce distinct sounds.
Explaining how the speed of sound is higher in a helium filled environment, including a demonstration of how this affects the sound of a person's voice.

Music from tube open at both ends, wooden flute; Jingle Bells on wooden trombone.
Examples from life; tuning forks; breaking a wine glass with an appropriate sound frequency.
