My four-year-old sister has tragically suffered left side paralysis from a brain injury. Because she's so young, her brain is remarkably plastic, and a lot of functionality has returned. She can walk, she can talk, and cognitively, she's fine. Her smile has even become more symmetrical.
We don't know to what degree her motor skills will return, but in her left hand/arm, progress is really slow. We know she will always have some left-side weakness, but just not how much.
I really want her to be musical. What fairly complex instruments will she be able to learn in the future, assuming she never fully recovers the use of her left arm/hand? Are there any simple instruments we can start her on now so she can have fun and experience music?
Also, as a bit of a fun tangent, are there any examples of musicians that became paralysed to some capacity and continued to play?
