As a certified Teacher of the Visually Impaired and music teacher, Shane has a uniquely overlapping understanding of both special education and music education. He is fluent in the music braille code and has taught students with a variety of needs and music experiences. Plus, as a blind person, Shane knows first-hand the situation facing music students in K-12 and collegiate music programs. If you are faced with the prospect of teaching music to a student at any level with a visual impairment, please reach out to Shane with questions.
I'll be happy to help you plan instruction, brainstorm accommodations, and figure out how to make your music education practice more inclusive. Contact me to set up a time to talk.
