Blind saxophonist teaches the next generation of musicians

Matthew Weihmuller gives a whole new meaning to “feeling” the music. “I’m actually reading ahead of what I’m describing,” he said as he slid his fingertips over the Braille notes on his music sheet.

He can’t make out shapes or colors and uses a cane to navigate hallways.
