Smashing Barriers - Stories That Inspire.

Oops! Music Without Barriers made a boo-boo. Sorry about that!

thermometer-oct-17We’re over 2,500 votes!

We also noticed a mistake on the description in our Aviva project.  We apologize for the error. This is regarding the statistics of how many Canadians are mobility or agility disabled which incorrectly reads: 65% of Canadians are identified as mobility or agility disabled.  It should correctly read:

65% of Canadians with disability are identified as mobility or agility disabled.

The intent of the statistic was to show that of persons living with disabilities in Canada, 65% are mobile or agility disabled meaning the physical act of getting to a traditional studio environment or even a music store is a barrier – one of many reasons why we believe a mobile studio is an important community initiative.

A Mobile “Studio Without Barriers” can power amazing, beautiful moments and foster so much creativity.  Just like this awesome video of Nikayla:

If everyone that voted so far had 10 friends and family vote 18 votes to the Studio Without Barriers, we’d break the thermometer graphic!

If you have been labeled with a “disability” (we dislike the term too), or know someone who has a disability, and you have seen how music can help improve quality of life and creativity, help the Studio Without Barriers become a finalist by having your friends and family vote!
