Although music is the only art totally accessible to visually impaired people, music literacy in Europe and not only in Europe is suffering a dramatic decline.
Braille was invented originally in order to allow blind musicians to be able to "read" their scores, and not only to play by ear (1829). Until the end of the '70s music studies offered valuable job opportunities to thousands of blind musicians all over Europe, and Braille music libraries / centres / services were present in almost every country, even smaller countries.
The new trend in learning methodology, as well as the schooling model based on integration of students with disabilities into mainstream schools, have had a negative impact on music literacy, as well as on other curricular subjects such as science, and on manual skills.
