Music through Braille. Final Report.
Burrows, Anne; Krolick, Bettye
The report describes a 1-month summer program at the Alberta College Music Centre (Edmonton) in which six visually impaired students (11-25 years old) were taught music through braille. Daily lessons covered such aspects as braille music signs, sight singing, music dictation, and basic conducting techniques. Extracurricular activities included visits to recording studios and exposure to professional performers. Benefits of the program included gains in both musical and social knowledge and awareness for the students, and increases in positive attitudes to the musical experiences made available to them. (CL)
