The ability to “play music by ear” is an asset, but is only one part of playing music. As part of braille literacy, braille readers should be introduced to braille music at the same time that their sighted peers begin reading music in print (usually around third or fourth grade).
Feel the Beat was developed by Christine Short. Among other honors, Christine was the 2011 co-recipient of the “Louis Braille Touch of Genius Prize,” awarded by National Braille Press, for her Music Braille Curriculum, which has become “Feel the Beat.”
