--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To provide a means for a child with cerebral palsy to play the recorder. A two-part holder was creared using clear acrylic. The first part of the holder was a column of two-millimeter wide acrylic disks joined by a thin strip of acrylic. Each disk has a hole in the center, varying slightly in size to adjust for the instrument's tapered shape, creating frets about eight millimeters in diameter to guide the player's fingers. The finger guide was nounted on a stand with a heavy polycarbonate base, an aluminum center column, and an acrylic frame that pivots to different angles on the column and has five height adjustments. The recorder is held on the frame with elastic clips. TITLE: Recorder Holder. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 24, Number 4, Summer 2004: P. 22. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
