This study documents a reflective journey of a series of music workshops initiated by a university Performing Arts faculty member in Istanbul, Turkey. The purpose of this narrative enquiry is to explore and examine the musical and bodily dialogues, engagements and critical thoughts between a music educator and children with developmental disabilities. Focusing particularly on the theories and practices of community music, this study illustrates the vision of community music, which says that everybody deserves the chance to interact musically through their body and psyche and to play alongside others in a community with the help of a facilitator.
