Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool, a 10-week nationally standardized curriculum, teaches children the science of sound through the magic of music. Using electronic musical instruments such as theremins, synthesizers, and effect pedals, as well as oscilloscopes and other teaching aides, the innovative program engages children in the basic physics of sound through music. Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool recently completed its pilot year with resounding success, and is currently in 32 classrooms reaching over 600 students in Buncombe County and Asheville City Schools. As part of Jam Cruise’s Positive Legacy Program the Bob Moog Foundation brought Dr. Bob’s Workshop to children in the Grand Turks along with Bernie Worell, Joel Cummins, and Rich Vogel. The Bob Moog Foundation is looking forward to regional and national expansion in coming years.
