The National Institute for young blinds (INJA) was founded in 1784 by Valentin Haüy. A famous pupil (and later teacher) was Louis Braille, the inventor of the braille system. From its start, the teaching of music has been an important part of the educational program of this institute The first organ class started in 1826 and by 1833 no less than 14 blind students held organist positions in the churches of Paris. The institute continued to produce large number of successful organists such as Louis Vierne, André Marchal, Jean Langlais and Gaston Litaize. The present building dates from 1844. See www.musimem.com/INJA.htm (in French) for further details.
