Hearing is one of the most important senses for blind and visually impaired people, and also the most valued sense to the musician. 

Luis Braille School is a very special place, where blind kids learn everything without seeing it, with all the daily difficulties involved, for example the fear of falling in a simple walk.

With a huge effort they learn sciences, language and math, but also Luis Braille School’s kids have a passion for music, a lot of them dream of being a guitar player or a singer, a pianist or a violinist.

But it isn’t that easy, some of them have interest in specific instruments such as the trumpet or the violin, but the school doesn’t have the economic resources to hire teachers or even to have available the instruments to the students.

Instruments are regularly broken or damaged by the kids because their blindness doesn’t allow them to take the proper care.

Being a professional violinist, I decided I could help them to make their dreams become true. No matter what their eyes don’t allow them to see, they have given a much bigger space in their souls to music through hearing.

I started to teach music and instruments such as violin and viola in Luis Braille School, it is difficult because they didn’t have a violin teacher before, indeed some of them have learned to play instruments by their own, but it is still enthralling to see how they quickly understand lessons and make progress.

We are having musical lessons once a week, and that will finish with a big gala at La Serena Theatre, where several orchestras of the region decided to support and participate so it makes a bigger impact on the community and all the money from ticket sales, will be in direct benefit of Luis Braille’s orchestra, so they can repair instruments, buy new ones and in that way the progress they make in class can be embodied in their performance as better artists.
