Strumming Along in Pre-K
Doherty pre-kindergarten-for-2-year-oldsrecently participated in their first music class with local award-winning scientist Barbara James. The young students got an up-close view of the guitar, feeling the vibration of the strings and observing the way sound is produced from the action of strumming the strings. Teacher Julie Brackett said James coupled her musical visit with a lesson about manners and kindness. The students enjoyed the visit, which included dancing and playing instruments.
