Braille music is based on the same six dots as traditional braille letters but the meanings of the braille characters are redefined to represent musical signs instead of traditional letters. So, there are signs for each note, key, tempo and duration, as well as all the other musical signs you would expect in a score such as dynamics, ornaments, articulations and so on.
Once mastered, the braille music code opens up a world of pleasure and fulfilment and keeps the magic of playing an instrument alive.
