Matt Daly, Seashell Trust's assistive technologist, work on ideas for the saxophone with Seashell Trust student Samir Ahmed
24th April 2017

Assistive technologist Matt Daly has been chosen to invent a new instrument for disabled musicians in just FOUR weeks.

Matt, who works in College, has been awarded £700 to develop a 'breathless auto sax', a saxophone played by switches and compressed air for our student Samir Ahmed.

Samir, who already sings in the College rock band, cannot play a saxophone because among his disabilities he has a lack of breath and difficulty feeling with his fingertips. He would also struggle with position of a conventional sax.
