Braille Music Awards
13 August 2014
The Gardner’s Trust Braille Music Literacy Award has been held annually since 1992, and is designed to encourage young musicians to use braille music.
The tests are held by the Royal National Institute of the Blind’s music advisory service, and sponsored by the Gardner’s Trust for the Blind. Open to musicians under the age of 19, the competition comprises two parts: performing a piece from memory, and reading the piece out loud, listing all the symbols used.
This year there were four winners of the award: Gelerah Tabatabaei from Mora Primary School, Brent, Luca Gatta and Zoe Dixon from New College, Worcester and Noah Mcneill from QEHS, Hexham.
