Musical Instruments for the Blind

blind children can learn to play an instrument just as well and often better than, sighted children provided the desire and the interest is there. Blind children often have a strong sense of rhythm and musical sensation since their hearing is more in tune with the world.

Of course, the assumption should not be made that just because they are blind, they should play a musical instrument. However, if a child or adult with a visual impairment decides that playing a musical instrument is something they would find beneficial, then by all means he should be given every consideration as you would for a sighted person.

There are instruments better adapted for the visually impaired than others. Most stringed instruments are a good musical instrument for the visually impaired, because the chains can be easily felt in order, especially for the violin, viola and cello.

The wind instruments and piano music can also make very good choices for the visually impaired when learning to play an instrument. They are considered the easiest musical instruments to memorize by touch and are quite versatile in musical arrangements. There is of course no restriction on the possibilities.

Generally, it is not necessary to find the student with visual impairments music teacher specially trained. A teacher who is creative and patient (we all hope that music teachers are) should be able to help students with visual impairments feel the musical instrument of their choice.

Musical instruments are often capable of being manipulated by the visually impaired simply because their design and structure is quite unique from a tactile perspective.
