Bret Dale, Programming Assistant at the River Music Experience, recently visited Wilson Elementary School to provide a musical enrichment activity for Stepping Stones students. Mr. Dale talked about the basic structures that tie all types of music together, including a lesson on the basics of sheet music and how to count to a musical beat. He also entertained students with fun and informative stories pertaining to musical folklore and the history of blues music. Students greatly enjoyed the culminating sing-along activity that involved a Halloween-themed group performance. During the song, students joined in by naming bugs and monsters that, as the song’s refrain said, “don’t scare me.” Thanks to the River Music Experience for partnering with Stepping Stones to provide quality out of school time programming for our students!
