Creative Ensembles for Beginning Musicians, First Series, is a Braille music manual designed for use by individuals who are blind or who have low vision. This instructional course-curriculum is a collection of 25 trios for readers of music at the beginning level. The book follows the progression of concepts as presented in Richard Taesch's An Introduction to Music for the Blind Student, Part I (see separate entry). These trios can be played on keyboard, sung, or performed on a student's primary instrument. This book promotes music literacy independent of the written medium. It is available in both print and braille editions. The braille edition presents both single-line and score format methods for each piece.
