Just saw a friend post this on facebook, a news article about flute being adapted for a girl who has one hand: http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Musician-Makes-Young-Flutists-Dreams-Come-True-226678441.html

There have been other threads here about adapted string instruments for people with one hand that has finger dexterity, but I haven’t seen any discussion about how to do this for wind instruments yet. Have any of the Suzuki flute teachers out there worked with adapting or customizing instruments?

Thanks for posting this inspiring story. I have seen professional flute makers adapting instruments to address performance health problems of flutists, but not this extensive a customization. A good example of following a dream and many things that seem impossible at first can be overcome!
