Does anyone have experience with Braille piano music or teaching a blind student?

I have a student and she' would like some music to 'read'...

I've just had my fifth session with my teacher-who is sightless- and I see her read it all the time. It's quite interesting. Amazing actually. I guess my situation is the exact opposite of yours. Anyway, she has a wall in her livingroom that's totally filled with braille music books. It seems that they're larger than us sighted peoples music books. You must have to be pretty creative to teach a sightless person. sometimes they make me feel like the impared. People who've been blind for a long time are truly amazing with their senses.

I was hoping you'd respond. I am creative, but don't play by ear and am not very strong on theory.. sigh. If you can get any contacts.. i know there is transcribing stuff, Kayla would sure appreciate it.

My teacher had a student who was blind. I believe my teacher taught her by touch and feel method, though i may be wrong. And the rate of the blind girls progress was really something.
