Description Focus on Music de Adam Ockelford:

Focus on Music 2 is the second in a series that examines the impact of different forms of visual impairment on the developing musicality of blind and partially-sighted children and young people.The research is based on observations of visually impaired children and young people by their parents, teachers and therapists, and by the authors themselves. A key question is how the participants' level of vision, the age of onset of their visual impairment, and the neurological consequences of their medical condition impact on their evolving musicality. Parents answered questions about the following: their perceptions of their children's interests in everyday sounds and music- the importance of music in different contexts and at different times- their children's musical abilities- their accounts of their children's engagements with music- the provision of music education and therapy. The research is complemented by illustrated case studies, which offer a range of detailed perspectives on the musical experiences, interests, abilities and education of seven children and young people with retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Examples of teaching strategies and assessments of musical development using the Sounds of Intent (SOI) Framework are illustrated. The book contributes to a wider recognition of the vital role of music therapy and education in the lives of all children with special educational needs, and concludes that neither visual impairment nor learning difficulties need be a barrier to musical fulfilment at all levels. This book will be helpful to those who work with children and young people with visual impairment, including their families, teachers and therapists. It will also interest music educators, music psychologists and researchers. Adam Ockelford is Professor of Music at Roehampton University and a Visiting Research Fellow at the Institute of Education, having formerly been Director of Education at the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). Adam is Secretary of the Society for Education, Music and Psychology Research (SEMPRE), Chair of Soundabout, and founder of the Amber Trust, a charity that supports visually impaired children in their pursuit of music. At the time of the study, Christina Matawa was Head of Music at Dorton House School in Sevenoaks, Kent, a school for visually impaired children run by the Royal London Society for the Blind, where she taught for five years. Christina now works for the Wandsworth Visual Impairment Specialist Teaching Service, supporting children and young people of all ages at home and in mainstream schools.
