The Academy of Music for the Blind (AMB)
MISSION & VISION
AMB is dedicated to addressing the unique talents and challenges of blind youth by developing their musical, creative, cognitive, physical and social skills through education in music and the performing arts.
Our vision is a world where a comprehensive education in music and the performing arts will be available to blind youth regardless of economic status or geography. With the development of their unique talents they will be able to integrate into mainstream educational and workplace settings, while inspiring and contributing to the larger community.
