The Music Man Project explores how the universal language of music can be used to free the constraints placed on people with learning disabilities across the world, joining them together through song, country by country. Communities in South Africa, India, Nepal, America and the Philippines have joined our global community so far. Please contact us if you would like to start a Music Man Project in your country or receive a visit from The Music Man Project International team.

“Music Man’s achievements were nothing short of remarkable. This method is key to special needs education in developing countries.”
