Established in 1986, the Coalition for Disabled Musicians, Inc. (CDM) is a voluntary, non-profit organization dedicated to enabling physically disabled musicians to pursue their musical dreams. CDM receives a few small grants and maintains its services through private and performance donations, but is always seeking additional financial assistance to improve and repair equipment, and is always recruiting volunteers to help move and operate the equipment, teach an instrument, or help out in the office.

Along with these ongoing projects, CDM is currently recording its second album. “We have many talented musicians with a lot of material to publish,” says President Linda Jaeger, “We look forward to completing this very soon.” CDM’s first album is available on tape, by mail order, and at their concerts.

CDM currently has performing groups available for indoor and outdoor shows. They currently perform all over Long Island and the East Coast. Give them a call for an up-to-date schedule of their upcoming performances, information on their quarterly newsletter, or to book them for a show.



If you are in the Long Island area, we welcome musicians, music students, road and sound crew members, music teachers, office volunteers, fund-raising staff, and any and all willing hands. Please call 804.725.9664.
