Rationale While brainstorming potential topics, I had already known that I wanted to discuss something that had involved music. As someone who had played piano from a young age and participated in many activities involving marching band and jazz band throughout middle and high school, music was something I had been surrounded by for a good amount of my life. Aside from counting beats and measures, I had never given much thought as to how much Mathematics could be applied to music. I wanted to stick with the idea in mind even though, at first, I was not able to find many interesting topics that would make for an insightful analysis. After doing some more research, I became interested in the Fibonacci sequence, reading about how prevalent it is in art, nature, music and mathematics. I decided on this topic to describe the various applications of the Fibonacci sequence in musical chords and various classical pieces.

The Sequence The Fibonacci Sequence was discovered by a 13th century Italian mathematician known as, Leonardo Pisano Bigollo, who was known Fibonacci. He had popularized the Hindu-Arabic number system in the Western Hemisphere while also introducing Europe to the sequence of Fibonacci numbers. The sequence starts with the numbers 0 and 1 with each other number being the sum of the previous two numbers. It starts by adding 0+1=1, then 1+1=2, afterwards, 1+2=3 and so forth. Eventually, the sequence will begin to look like

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89,
