Music Together Ireland's activities are aimed primarily at adults with disabilities who have not been able to access music education because of a lack of specialist teaching, assistive technology or because of the lack of opportunity to learn basic skills.
Our aim is to enhance and develop performers' skills in music, voice, composition, percussion and music technology with a view to performing concerts at Arts Events in the area and build new audiences for arts and disability events and demonstrate Music Together's integrated approach to the performing arts.
We have been using the aluphone in public performances with Ann Sullivan students and students from other disability organisations in Co. Dublin and Co. Wicklow.
So far the encounter with this new instrument has been exciting and fulfilling for everyone.
