seeking blind/low vision musicians, music teachers, and early blind music learners

David Trott
 

 

Hello! 

 

My name is Leon and I'm a PhD student at Carleton University, Canada. I'm working on a project to better understand the challenges of music learners who are visually impaired. 

 

We are looking to interview music teachers (sighted and visually impaired), visually impaired musicians and visually impaired early music learners to better understand learning challenges and strategies to inform the development of assistive technology to help with music learning. We will be compensating all participants for their time with a 25 CAD gift card. 

 

Here is a link with more information about the study: https://cil.csit.carleton.ca/accessibility-challenges-for-blind-or-visually-impaired-music-learners/

 

I have also attached below a formal letter of invitation along with this email which contains specific information about the study. 

 

Thank you! 

 

Leon

Email Invitation Subject: Participate in a study to understand the accessibility challenges of blind or vision impaired music learners

 

Hello, My name is Leon Lu and I am PhD student in the School of Information Technology at Carleton University. I am looking for participants to take part in an online or on[1]phone interview with me where we will discuss your experience with learning and playing music and the challenges associated with visual impairment that will last for about 60 minutes or less. This study will be conducted under the supervision of Dr. Audrey Girouard.

 

The purpose of this study is to better understand accessibility in learning and playing music for people who are blind or low vision. As a participant in the study, you will take part in an online interview where you will be asked to discuss your experience with music and visual impairment, with topics ranging from learning strategies, communication challenges, musical notation and future assistive technologies for music learning. During our interview, I will be taking notes of what you say, video recordings are encouraged but are optional to participation while audio recordings are mandatory for data collection. You will have the option to withdraw your consent after the interview has been recorded as well. Later, a transcription of the interview will be made using an AI transcription software called Trint with your consent. If you are not comfortable with the software, the lead researcher will make a manual transcription of the interview.

 

This interview will not cover any sensitive material and care will be taken to ensure that your data will be secure. Audio and video recordings of the interview will be stored on a password protected computer until transcription and then deleted after transcription. Consent forms, Interview notes and Interview transcriptions will be stored on Citrix Sharefile which is hosted by Carleton Universities secure servers for a period of 3 years from completion of study. Master List with identifiable personal data will be stored on a USB thumb drive in a secure location under lock on campus.

 

Your participation in this study is voluntary and you may choose not to take part or choose not to answer any question. If you decide to withdraw from the study after the interview, you must notify the lead researcher before the 1st of July, 2021.

 

As a token of appreciation, you will receive a CAD 25 e-gift card of your choosing with the default option being an Amazon card for your participation in the interview. The interview will take place either over the phone or over an online video call using Zoom, Google Meet etc.

 

This research has been cleared by Carleton University Research Ethics Board B Clearance # 115766 Should you have any ethical concerns with the study, please contact the REB Chair, Carleton University Research Ethics Board-B by email: ethics@.... For all other questions about the study, please contact the researcher.

 

To be eligible for the study, you must be an English speaker with lived experience in music and visual impairment. All Participants must fall into at least one of the three following categories below.

• Music Teachers: Participants who have experience teaching blind or low vision music learners in a formal or informal setting. Participants may have formal training in either education or in music or both. Participants must have taught at least one blind or low vision music learner for at least 6 months.

• Blind or Low Vision Musicians: Participants who are partially or fully blind and have formal or informal training in at least one musical instrument (including voice). Participants may also have experience teaching music and/or playing and performing music with other sighted or blind musicians.

• Early Blind Music Learners: Participants who are blind or low vision and have less than 1 year of experience learning a musical instrument. Participants may currently be taking music classes in a formal or informal setting.

 

If you would like to participate in this research project, or have any questions about the research, please contact me at leon.lu@....

 

Sincerely, Leon Lu
