Historical information
"Thjs collection of Braille Music was presented to the Royal Blind Society of New South Wales by Mrs Ruby Lavers in memory of her husband Gordon Lavers L.R.S.M., A.R.C.O. Director of Music of this Society from 1917 to 1961".
Braille music requires a specialised understanding of both musical scores and music Braille notation. This collection materials would have been valuable addition to the Society, where blind musicians often had to learn pieces through memory due to the lack of musical scores transcribed.
