Lincoln third graders demonstrated their drumming skills at their 12/11 school program titled "A Family Christmas."

It’s Christmas season, and it sure sounds like it! It seems like the moment Thanksgiving ends, you hear Christmas music everywhere.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, everyone is familiar with the classic Christian hymns, even those matched to popular music.  But it’s not just during Christmas season when music seems to matter so much. Music has been a powerful part of cultural events and entertainment for as long as we’ve existed, reaching all corners of the globe throughout the millennia.

Music is made up of sounds, and sound is everywhere in our life. It wakes us up in the morning, accompanies us on road trips, and helps us communicate. But what is sound, and how does it work?
