More About VAMS. . . continued
“It is still very necessary to have a society that supports people with disabilities, that provides links to other musicians, equipment and places to play,” added Dave. “It’s pretty difficult to do all that on your own.”
Digital technology means that making and recording music is more accessible, but people just starting out on an interest are often wary of spending large amounts before they know what works best for them. In addition, musicians still face barriers, particulraly regarding public performance. While a city like Vancouver has many venues that announce themselves as “accessible,” usually this only applies to the auditorium – there are few accessible stages.
Musicians with disabilities still have to struggle to be heard. And that’s why there will always be a role for VAMS.
