Published by Opus Technologies, this book explains the music braille symbols most frequently found in elementary through intermediate-level music. It's written at a fifth grade reading level, so it's suitable for both children and adults.

Use this book if you are working with students who want to play in the band, or if you have more serious, higher-level blind musicians who need a strong understanding of the braille music code.

Note: The braille edition of this book will be ready in late fall 2018.
