The Academy of Music for the Blind
Music is Our Vision
AMB Students and Teachers
AMB is a non-profit shool of music founded by Director David Pinto whose vision to provide a comprehensive music education to musically talented blind children has set a world wide example of excellence in music education. AMB has been serving talented blind students for over 11 years and is the only year-round music school in America solely dedicated to educating the blind and visually impaired.
AMB was specifically created to address a glaring hole in music education: the absence of music instruction specifically tailored to the unique needs of the blind student. With thousands of excellent music schools dedicated to serving the sighted, the founding of AMB finally provided blind and visually impaired music students with the level of excellence that their sighted peers enjoy and take for granted.
At AMB, students develop their unique musical talents under the supervision of degreed teachers trained in educating the visually impaired. With an education that fully develops their unique talents and social skills, students become prepared for integration into both other educational institutions, as well as the workplace. And even for those students who do not go on to a music vocation, the support they gain from AMB students, teachers, friends and families, as well as the skills that they gain musically, cognitively and socially, makes an enormous contribution to their quality of life.
Please enjoy the following pages of information and entertainment. See, and hear, for yourself the joy and miracles that a music education for the blind provides.
