Learning about music is now more accessible than ever. As part of this year’s Music In Our Schools month, Google Chrome is testing out new technologies that allow everyone to learn music, so long as they have a computer and the Internet. According to the website, Chrome Music Lab is a “collection of experiments that let anyone, at any age, explore how music works. They’re collaborations between musicians and coders, all built with the freely available Web Audio API.” Science Confirms That People Who Play Music Are Smarter Than Others [Watch]So far, users are able to to create, analyze, and visualize music right in the browser without any plug-ins. You can see what sound looks like, how melody works, create rhythms, and can even turn your own drawings into music. Take a look at some of the technology they’ve incorporated to make this possible.Still in it’s experimental phase, the program is currently open-sourced to allow coders to go in an build their own ideas. Check out what Chrome Music Lab is capable of, and explore the site yourself. Watch the demonstration video below:[H/T JamBase]

It was the moment I had waited for for two weeks. It wasn’t being in the front row of the student section with a record crowd. It wasn’t watching Syracuse beat Duke, though those will also be great.As I walked along the outside of the Dome, an SUV pulled up and the door slowly opened. Jim Boeheim stepped out and was met with a cheer from a crowd of media and students. I had known he was coming. I left class, got a shower – you have to look presentable when meeting such a legend – and ran over to the Carrier Dome around 11. Already photographers, reporters and cameramen were packing into Boeheimburg. I did a few interviews and then the fateful moment came. Boeheim greeted us all, answered a few questions, took a tour of Boeheimburg and explained how he would’ve only lasted one night out in the cold, if that.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs a (somewhat) member of the media — a design editor at The Daily Orange — I try not to let the fan side of me take over, but getting to meet one of the greatest coaches in college basketball was too surreal.He told me he was a boy scout and didn’t like camping when it was only 40 degrees, let alone the temperatures we have been dealing with.Some players and other coaches also stopped by. They talked to everyone and took pictures. I even got to talk to Gerry McNamara about his playing days and when he lived on South Campus. Otto the Orange was around and some cheerleaders were on hand giving out donuts and coffee.As quickly as they came, they got back into their cars and left. A few people were still doing interviews, but most of the excitement died down pretty quickly.These past few days have been filled with excitement and anticipation. The Dome is going to be electric on Saturday and I can’t wait. SU expects 35,446 people to be in attendance, but I bet it will sound like a lot more.
