>Date: Thursday, January 19, 2012
>Time: 10:00 AM CST, 16:00 GMT
>How do blind and low vision people read and 
>write music? Isn’t that braille music code 
>impossibly hard to learn? How can blind 
>producers make great sounding records 
>independently? How can blind and low vision 
>people participate in music groups with sighted 
>musicians? Can I read magnified music notation while I play my instrument?
>To learn the answers to these and related 
>questions, you are invited to attend a Hadley 
>seminar presentation given by Bill McCann, 
>founder and president of Dancing Dots®. McCann 
>will share some of his background as a musician 
>turned programmer, turned entrepreneur. For 
>almost two decades now, his company has thrived 
>in the tiny niche market where music meets 
>technology for the blind. His journey has 
>brought him to almost half of the 41 countries 
>where his company’s accessible music 
>technology is used, with encounters along the 
>way with such notables as Stevie Wonder, Diane 
>Schuur, Ronny Milsap, Ray Charles, Henry Butler, 
>Marcus Roberts and Raul Midon, as well as visits 
>to the White House, the Hôtel de Ville in 
>Paris, and concert venues from Prague to Sao 
>Paulo. Meet someone who "hasn’t had a real job 
>in 20 years" and who is still "having fun most days" working six days a week to
>build, maintain and broaden opportunities for 
>musicians who are blind or low vision.
>Space in this seminar is limited. Please only 
>register if you know you are available to attend 
>so that others are not closed out. To register
