For many people principle barriers to making music are the instruments themselves. In 2006 in partnership with NESTA a team from Edinburgh University set about creating a new kind of musical instrument. One that was designed for children, to support natural musicality in play and more specifically one that would be accessible to all children, including those with physical or learning disabilities. This was how Skoog was born.
This session will explore the science behind Skoog and the different challenges the team faced in developing a new musical instrument specifically for children with disabilities.
