MagneMusic is a unique magnetic resource designed to assist students who are blind, to understand what print music looks like. It has also been successfully used with sighted students. Dancing Dots recently acquired the rights to market this innovative product worldwide from its inventor, Wendy Richards from New Zealand.
We have had innumerable inquiries over the years about a means for blind people to learn about how printed music notation looks. MagneMusic lets you feel the music.
For a limited time, we are offering the product at the introductory price of $79.
The resource is a white, flat rectangle tin 34cm X 21cm X 3cm depth, hinged down one long side and opening somewhat like a cake tin. Holding the tin vertically, you will find a grand stave marked on the front with fine black vinyl tape. The vinyl allows the lines to be clearly felt. Holding the tin horizontally and opening the lid, you will find a long single stave inside the lid, also marked with fine vinyl tape. Inside the tin you will find black magnetic print music symbols which can be placed on either stave. The symbols are magnetic on one side only, which helps with placing stems correctly. If the symbol does not stick, it needs to be turned over.
