Sound School

We have just completed a two-month unit called Dr. Bob's Sound School. Asheville City Schools partnered with the Moog Foundation to create ten science lessons that develop students' understanding of sound, which is part of essential science standards. The unit culminated with a performance at the Orange Peel. All the students in second grade at Dickson performed an original song they created with our artist in residence, Jonathan Santos. The opportunity was provided by the Asheville City Schools Foundation, through a TAPAS grant. We worked with Burton Street Recording who engineered the track for our music. This opportunity was provided by LEAF in Schools. It was an awesome experience to share what we have learned and to perform for parents and others in the community.
