The OHMI Trusts objectives are to remove barriers to music making faced by physically disabled people and to enable undifferentiated participation in musical life whether at school, at home or in a professional ensemble.

The students worked in groups and individually to learn about a range of arts, music and delivery of sounds. They had the opportunity to meet a disabled musician, Kris Halpin, who is known worldwide for his musical ability! The students really enjoyed learning how to play a range of instruments.
