The kindergarten classes in Pomfret Community School experienced the science of sound. “Science of Sound: When is it Music” was a 45-60 minute exploration of the nature and creation of sound, through hands-on activities, observation, creative exploration and song. The program was led by Sally Rogers, a master teaching artist with the Connecticut Office of the Arts. Students were able to engage in inquiry-based learning and guided critical thinking to explore principles of sound and how music is created.
This program was one of the free education programs offered by Performing Arts of Northeast CT. Performing Arts is an all-volunteer non-profit organization funded by private and state grants, local businesses and individual donations.
