Any deficiency in one hand or arm makes traditional instruments unplayable to any reasonable standard. Whether from a congenital disorder, illness or injury, perhaps following a stroke or from arthritis, millions across the world are excluded from music-making. But with the right instrument, anyone can have the opportunity to participate fully in musical life.
Through the creation and provision of adapted musical instruments, the OHMI Trust aims to remove the barriers to music-making faced by those with a physical disability. This is achieved in three ways; sourcing instruments; supporting instrumental tuition; and research into instrument design, manufacturing, and teaching methods.
Music workshops are taking place at 3pm on Friday 29th and 11am on Saturday 30th March. Booking is not required.
