I have a new piano pupil starting this week who is blind (and also quite young - 6 years old). Although I have taught children of this age in the past, I have never taught someone who is blind, so I think it's going to be something of an adventure! I have met the child - he is very bright and articulate, which is promising, and has a good ear. He has an electronic keyboard on which he is able to play some simple tunes by ear. I understand from his mum that he cannot see anything out of one eye, and only a very slight amount out of the other.
I was wondering if anyone has experience of teaching a blind pupil, and might be prepared to pass on any tips or advice on activities which work well, and perhaps on things to avoid too!
