New Hadley Course Gives a Voice to Braille Music
The Hadley School for the Blind's new course "Braille Music Basics"
offers an introduction to the fundamentals of braille music for
sighted users who want to learn about transcribing print music into
braille, teach braille music, or simply support someone who is
interested in learning the braille music code.
The information in this introductory course does not enable students
to professionally transcribe print music, teach music, or teach
braille. However, after completing the course, students can
enthusiastically support and encourage a music student who is blind
and learning to read music independently.
"Learning the basics of braille music is a great opportunity for music
teachers working with students who are blind. Reading braille music
can open many doors toward self-confidence and further independence,"
says instructor Linn Sorge.
APH is proud to have provided part of the funding to help Hadley
develop this valuable course.
