The Brummitt-Taylor Music Listening Program
Through repeated listening, students learn to recognize composers and compositions, different musical instruments, the creative process in music, basic music vocabulary, and accept the music of fine composers as part of their daily curriculum.
Brummitt-Taylor allows teachers and school administrators to address a significant part of the Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) standards, which are required by all California schools, in a way that is enjoyable and easy to implement .
The program is now in it’s eighth year and is being used in classrooms throughout Inyo County.
