This introductory course into Music Braille is designed to give vision support teachers an overview of music transcription. Participants should have a Grade 5 AMEB level of understanding of music as this course will not go into learning of print music notation. The course is designed to teach basic music braille code over a series of lectures and apply that knowledge to formatting single line melodies, with and without words, piano music and simple orchestral scores of 3 to 6 lines. This is a practical based course and participants will have the opportunity to work examples during class and receive immediate feedback.
Participants will need: Perkins brailler and paper and manuscript paper
On-line participants will need: access to Duxbury or equivalent, music notation software like MuseScore (free program) or manuscript paper (images of work can be sent). Worked samples to be emailed in.
