Music For The Blind

"Lessons for over a dozen instruments demonstrated and explained totally 'by ear' in everyday language. No music, no Braille, no hard to learn system. Just great music instruction. The number of 'Intro to' courses has reached a dozen and the 'by ear' song lesson list keeps growing from it's current 500+ mark. Almost all of Mr. Brown's offerings are available through the National Library Service as well."

Brown, Bill

The set up of the instructions and guidelines to this system of teaching an individual with disabilities to play an instrument is great. It is easy to follow and easily learn from.

It took me several years of struggling with the heavy door to my building, sometimes having to wait until a person stronger came along, to realize that the door was an accessibility problem, not only for me, but for others as well. And I did not notice, until one of my students pointed it out, that the lack of signs that could be read from a distance at my university forced people with mobility impairments to expend a lot of energy unnecessarily, searching for rooms and offices. Although I have encountered this difficulty myself on days when walking was exhausting to me, I interpreted it, automatically, as a problem arising from my illness (as I did with the door), rather than as a problem arising from the built environment having been created for too narrow a range of people and situations.
