At Mary Hare School for the Deaf, Newbury Berkshire
There are many ways to show music being connected with visual arts. Below you will see pictures of the students from Mary Hare taking part in many music related activities in the Art Block.  With thanks to Decibels and Berkshire Community Foundation for the generous funding for the project.

List below:
1) Pitch and Vibrations – the science and measurements in pitch/vibrations
2) Structures in Music – explorations in Binary (A/B), Ternary (ABA) and Rondo forms (ABACA)
3) The Weather Symphony – how the weather changes – what music would sound and do – class activity
4) Palindromes/symmetry – where music and visual ideas are inverted/rearranged
5) Dynamic I and II – live performance of Japanese music on dynamics
6) Expression – the emotional quality in music performance into pictures
7) Impressionism – performing, composing music and painting
8) Synaesthesia – neurological phenomenon, colours, music and composition
9) The Elements of Music – into pictures with comparisons
