Abstract

New Horizons International Music Association (NHIMA) bands provide opportunities for older adults to learn, or relearn, a band instrument. Musicians have unique circumstances for vision, and older adults have identified vision as a top concern in their musical experiences. This study explores vision correction experiences of older adults participating in NHIMA Bands and the effectiveness of three accommodations.
