Welcome to Special Musicians!

We are a non-profit passionately working to open up opportunities for those with different abilities to finally feel as powerful and capable as they actually are. Music is freedom, and we believe that everyone deserves to feel free through music. We aim to eradicate negative preconceived notions about those with different abilities and be a part of the group that truly inspires change and builds acceptance for all THROUGH music.

She has a whiteboard in front of her with a rhythm in front of it and is mid clapping.
