Page 8, National Resource Center for Blind Musicians Survey

We invite you to let us know who you are, your music needs, and suggestions for service. The Resource center thrives through communication. Most of what we know and pass on to others has come from people who have written or called to share their experiences. We welcome questions and are happy to keep you in mind for when we learn of a development in your area of interest. The key is to let us know you are out there.

This page provides a questionnaire, which you may use if you want to provide us with the essentials for our database or would like to give us background for a question you have. It goes without saying that if you would rather not bother with the survey, you may simply write or call.

About the Survey

We have tried a number of web form methods, but have concluded that traditional e-mail is the most reliable, and the one withh which people are most comfortable. We provide a template with the questions, which you can paste into an e-mail message, and then go back and fill in the answers.

To get set up for filling out the survey, start an e-mail message to Use a subject we are likely to recognize, such as "Resource Center survey." Paste the form which follows into the body of your message, and then fill in the answers. For items that have a statement you might wish to check, place the letter x between the angle brackets before the statement. You may leave any questions blank that do not apply. Since this is e-mail, you may place comments wherever you like.
