A fantastic introduction to using switches in music lessons to enable access, from Audrey Podmore at Living My Song.
“Many disabled pupils, unable to make music in any other way, can participate in a musical performance if they have switch access. In the music classroom, switch systems may be used in two ways: they are communication aids, used as controllers for speech synthesisers, text writers, etc., and also serve as virtual musical instruments, controlling various sound-making devices. It is important that, when used as virtual instruments, they should be treated in the same way as any other musical instrument.
This leaflet will assist teachers in using the switch system as an integrated resource for classroom music-making.”
