Accesability
The dexterity required for keyboards and strings can be side stepped with the use of arcade games, alarm systems and smart phone devices supported by open source (free) technology.

Low Cost
Open source technology supports the global exchangeof ideas. My "Accessible Music Project" aims to help in the take up of assisted music technology.

Accessibility
The aim is to support music therapist, their students or services users and support carer involvement i.e. to engage in music at any time for fun or therapy. That is not just an hour a week at a day centre ,but every day with carer support.

Objectivity
The AMP's devices can do data logging with potential to support research and funding applications with demonstrable outcomes.

With 21st centaury technology, a wall can sing, a table becomes an electric guitar, a floor is a drum kit.

A talking table. Pictures, sound clips and background can be swapped around for any purpose (Uses capacitive sensing)..
