In this paper it is described the assessment of the ACMUS (Accessible Music), a multimedia tool that merges sound and colours in order to make music and its benefits more accessible. The aim of the assessment is to clarify the optimal educational field for this tool, either primary education, secondary education or special education through experiences in real context and its evaluation by teachers and students. Based on these data, the conclusion is that special education is the best field for this tool, which provides some useful applications in this context. Besides, the assessment also gives many useful suggestions to improve ACMUS.
