The Saxophone For A One Handed Musician

June 3, 2016

The winner of the annual One Handed Musical Instrument Competition (OHMI) has been announced. Designed to be performed at virtuoso level, the tenor and soprano saxophones developed by Maarten Visser won this year’s prize.

Neill Duncan plays the soprano sax after having his arm amputated three years ago. The instrument is about more than just playing music for him.

“It’s put me back into a place where I’m doing what I should be doing on this planet,” he says.
