The program was inspired by Dr. David Nabb and his continuing success with his Stelling Brass & Winds "toggle-key" saxophone.

Dr. Nabb has taught woodwinds at the University of Nebraska at Kearney since 1994. In 2000, he survived a massive stroke that left him unable to play or teach.

Together with Stelling Brass & Winds of Kearney, Dr. Nabb developed a "toggle-key" saxophone that can be played with only one hand. In 2003, his new instrument allowed Dr. Nabb to resume performing and all of his pre-stroke teaching activities.

The University of Nebraska at Kearney One-Handed Woodwinds Program maintains the philosophy that music is a necessary element of the human experience.
