Title: Musical Mobility: Understanding Everyday Musical Experiences Through Disability
Author: Battistelli, Davina

Advisor: Kawano, Satsuki
Abstract: This study examines how people with physical disabilities use music in their role as listeners to improve and impact their well-being and experiences of joy in their daily lives. Through an exploration of the music listening practices of people who self-identified as having physical disabilities in south-western Ontario, this project proposes the concept of musical mobility to provide an in-depth understanding of how participants make use of music in creative ways. This thesis illuminates the need to further explore how we conceptualize disability and demonstrates what we can gain from listening to peoples’ experiences of joy and well-being.
