Focus on Music breaks new ground. It is the first survey of its kind to explore the musicality of blind and partially-sighted children in the UK and USA. Through the eyes and ears of their parents and teachers, and through the first-hand experiences of the research team, an intriguing picture emerges of a group of young people in whose lives music occupies a special place. Few of these young people receive the services that their special musical interests and talents deserve, however, and Focus on Music makes a number of recommendations to improve the equality of access to music education for all blind and partially-sighted children, including those with additional disabilities.
