Downing Logo_no background_edited.png

Creating an environment where #allmeansall in music instruction, Downing Gives Bach is a full-inclusion curriculum developed for both general education students and those enrolled in the Academic Life Skills classes at Downing Middle School in Flower Mound, TX. Based on the Giving Bach model created by Richard Meyer to "enrich the lives of young people by providing opportunities for young student musicians to perform for their peers in concerts that are educational and interactive," the program at Downing Middle School is a full-inclusion class where students can learn to enjoy, appreciate, and perform music in a safe and fun environment with an underlying foundation in Universal Design for Learning.
