The Visual Aid for the Musician enables visually-impaired musicians to continue reading and enjoying their sheet music.
According to census data in 2010, 13 million Americans aged 40 and older will have a visual impairment or be blind by the year 2050. Many of these people can continue to have a rich, fulfilling life with help from special products and services. One such product is Visual Aid for the Musician.
Visual Aid for the Musician is for visually-impaired musicians or older musicians who are suffering the effects of diseases, such as macular degeneration. It is a software program that converts standard sheet-music scores into magnified bar-sized sections that can be displayed sequentially and at any speed desired, on a large desktop computer monitor, flat-screen TV, personal tablet, or laptop. It makes it possible for such musicians to read music again, and continue to actively enjoy their art. Televised test marketing has been completed indicating exceptionally strong consumer interest in the Visual Aid for the Musician.
The Patent Pending Visual Aid for the Musician was invented by Benjamin Evans of Coopersburg, PA. He is a retired public school music educator as well as church organist and choir director, coping with macular degeneration. He said, "The Visual Aid for the Musician program can be of immense, even life-changing, value to millions of musicians now frustrated by their inability to read standard sheet-music scores. These musicians will not only be able to read the score, but to move through it, measure-by-measure, at their own pace. They can use the Visual Aid to prepare any sheet-music of their choosing."
