The Case for Adapted Musical Instruments

David Nabb is a Professor of Music at the University of Nebraska at Keaney.  He suffered a stroke in 2000 which paralyzed the left side of his body.  Over the course of several years, he worked with Jeff Stelling to design a saxophone that can be played with the right hand alone.  David recently gave a TedX talk in Lincoln, Nebraska about rediscovering his musical identity through his adapted instrument.  Thank you, David, for sharing your story and your musicianship!
