Testimonials

I want to thank Mr. Choi for this excellent online Braille Music course! This is a fantastic course; and if you are an individual who is seeking to develop or improve your musical talent this is the perfect opportunity to learn how to read Braille music notations and eventually able to read an entire music score with all of the symbols and expression marks.

Now that I've completed the course I am very happy with my results, and I am confident that my time spent in this course was and is a wise investment. The lessons were thoughtfully planned and easy to follow. It was a pleasure completing the assignments because they helped me to fully understand the content and enabled me to gain some valuable transferable skills that will be beneficial to me in the future.

Thanks a million to Mr. Choi for his vision and his passion. I personally witnessed a teacher who is very excited about teaching Braille music. He is very willing to answer any question, play or sing a note or measure, and he will even write a score to illustrate the example.

I will recommend this course to anyone, "You will never regret it." My proof is this: I am now able to use my Braille music hymn book more effectively whereas prior to this course I would skip a hymn because I did not recognize the symbol. Thank goodness! This course has made a difference.
