On February 3 the FMDG Music School was represented by both staff and students at the 2024 NYC Braille Challenge. The annual event attracts braille readers from across the city to compete and raise awareness for braille literacy.
This year the FMDG Music School table was staffed by Donna Grajauskas (Operations Manger) and Richard Thai (Program Manager). Visitors got to learn about the Music School’s programs as well as view accessible music formats such as large print and braille music.
Thank you to all the students, parents, and teachers who visited the FMDG Music School organization table.
