Music Appreciation Lessons by Free Music School

Every year Dr. Floyd Jackson offers an inspirational music lesson to the children at each school in San Pedro. The lesson consists of music history, theory, ear training and demonstrations on violin, flute, trumpet, piano and guitar. Ambergris Today caught up with Dr. Jackson at Isla Bonita Elementary School where he presented his lessons to two different age groups. He was accompanied by Brandi Paige and Tull Rae who play at Fido’s with the band Love Paradigm. They played rock music for the students, much to their enjoyment.

Isla Bonita Students receive an introduction to Classical/Rock Music

On Friday May 28th, students from the Isla Bonita Primary school were honored with musical presentations by Dr. Floyd Jackson of San Pedro’s Free Music School and musicians Tull and Brandy, of “Love Paradigm”. Dr. Jackson strives to promote music appreciation to students of all ages. Apart from running San Pedro’s only Free Music School, Dr. Jackson takes time out of his schedule to bring music into the classrooms across the Island.
During this presentation, he was joined by Tull – an accomplished musician, and Brandy – a songstress and accomplished guitar player. The two are contracted exclusively with Fido’s. Dr. Jackson introduced the children to classical music, while the duo fed the children’s imaginations and excitement with music from the Rock genre.
All presenters were received by the children with standing ovations. Dr. Jackson hopes that this exposure will serve to spark an interest in music within the minds of the recipients of the presentations.
