L-R: David Segal, Dom Famularo, Andrew Hewitt, and Mike Mignogna
at Dom Famularo's Wizdom Woodshed in New York - 15th March 2013
Several months ago I was involved in a meeting at Drummer and Teacher Dom Famularo’s Wizdom Woodshed in New York. The purpose of the meeting was to establish a new global organization to promote and support musicians with disabilities from all over the world. The new global organization has a board of 4 members, myself, David Segal from NYC, now in Connecticut; Andrew Hewitt from Australia; Dom Famularo from New York and Mike Mignogna from Tennessee.
As our Mission Statement says Can Do Musos want to provide guidance and hope to all musicians with challenges. Music is empowering and has no limitations and everyone should have a chance at their dreams.
Having a "Can Do attitude" is the first step toward success! On our website, we use the word "Challenges". We feel that disability quite often gets misinterpreted as an inability. People with challenges have passion, can be empowered and want to succeed.We are looking for passionate musicians with challenges to profile on our website and be a part of this unique new organization. So far we have attracted people from Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, United States and Venezuela.We now have a website which can be found at http://www.candomusos.com also you can like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Can-Do-Musos/457807147633068
