This article reflects on a recent research report published in the Research Studies in Music Education journal detailing my approach to instrumental tuition for musicians who have Down’s Syndrome (Pickard, 2019). It is hoped that this article will be an accessible summary of the research and the proposed framework which can be explored by musicians with Down’s syndrome, their families, supporters, and music tutors. For this article I have chosen to focus on one musician, Olivia, who along with her family has given consent to be part of this article.
