Introduction to Music for the Blind Student, Part I is a Braille music manual designed for use by individuals who are blind or who have low vision. This is an instructional course-curriculum in music fundamentals, music reading, sight singing, theory, and ear-training using the Braille Music Code as the medium. Print music is considered secondary, and is included for the convenience of the sighted teacher or tutor. It is possible for a sighted or blind musician to administer or to study this work without prior knowledge of the Braille music code. A sighted teacher, parent, or tutor with little or no knowledge of Braille or conventional print music may guide a student who is blind through this course. This course may also be used for teacher training. The course is divided into two Parts. Part I (Phases One through Four) is "ground level," and covers rudiments through intermediate melodic interpretation and key signatures. Part I is written into three separate print volumes: Lessons; Lesson Exercises; and Supplemental Exercises. The Braille edition exists in four Braille volumes. All three print volumes are integrated and used simultaneously; however, each may also be used separately depending upon individual application.
Notes: This course is by Richard Taesch. ** The purchase price listed is for the set of three print and four Braille volumes. The print set and the Braille set are also sold separately. ** See also the separate entry for Introduction to Music for the Blind Student, Part II.
