How we can help you
We can all enjoy making music in some form, regardless of our abilities. Using technology can help to provide access to music.
Activities for beginners
Using our percussion instruments, your own instruments, or virtual sounds produced through computer software, you can make music. Playing simple rhythms and then melodies improves co-ordination and fine motor skills.
- Increased self-esteem and confidence
- Improving hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills
- Improving communication and social skills
- Feeling a sense of achievement and learning new skills
We work with individuals or groups. Get in touch to find out more.
Project support for individuals or groups
For those who are more experienced, Global Music Visions C.I.C. supports the development of individual projects and ideas. Our activities and the pace are participant led. We encourage the involvement of family, friends, and carers, if they wish.
We also work with adults who once were involved in their own musical projects, but through their disability feel they can’t continue.
You can record, edit, mix and produce your own projects with support from our team, or add sounds to imagery and voice-over work.
Other activities include:
- Try out being a sound engineer
- Practice your skills as a musician/artist
- Try some voice over work
- Create musical jingles
- Put sound to imagery
- Do some audio descriptive work
- Or something else entirely!
Whatever your project idea, Global Music Visions C.I.C. can help you to achieve your goal, get in touch to find out more.
We also create/record audio description for literature/books, leaflets, posters, video, images/photos, business materials, and more.

Here at Global Music Visions C.I.C. we aim to bring the benefits of music to as many blind, visually impaired, and disabled children and adults as possible, by using computer music software technology.
We work alongside able-bodied people to promote inclusivity.
We want to remove the stigma surrounding disability, break down the barriers that prevent equality and inclusion, and create new opportunities based on a person’s ability, and their ideas.
Participate, enjoy, achieve.
