Hi everyone!

I just followed the link that James gave in one of his previous posts for this book:

Jazz Piano Masterclass: The Drop 2 Book
Mark Levine
Sher Music


Then, I just followed the link to:

Obtaining a Braille embossed copy

Here is what it says:

Ordering Embossed Braille
Additionally, through a partnership with TechAdapt Inc., you can order a Bookshare book in embossed Braille. Anyone in the United States can order these embossed books;
you do not need to be a Bookshare Member.  Please email
with the book title, author, and ISBN number, if available. TechAdapt will contact you with embossing options and pricing information. Only books that are "excellent" or "publisher" quality can be embossed. Newspapers and magazines are not available in embossed braille. You can have the books sent directly to you or sent to someone
as a gift.

This page is at:


Does anyone know whether TechAdapt Inc. can braille music?

James, you might want to write to them and ask if no one on the list knows.

Another option is to contact a transcriber who specializes in braille music. I don't know of any offhand, so you could google it and see what comes up.

I called the publisher, and on their site at http://www.shermusic.com/new/digital_books.shtml, they have Bookshare listed as a publisher of their digital books. Probably it would be a good idea to see if someone would record the book or books.

HI Jim,

This is a publisher donated book. So, even if there is musical notation in it, it won't be represented except as images. Sorry!

I wonder if someone can tell me if this book uses actual musical notes or just charts and chord symbols. I started to read it, and every image said "image." And if Bookshare isn't into music, how did this get there? I'm trying to get back some of my piano technique and was hopeful, but ah well.
