Adaptive Music Lessons
(Ages 5 years old – 23 years old)
Adapted music lessons are created to help individuals with special strengths to learn to play a piano, guitar, or preferred instrument. Playing an instrument can be a motivational modality that can naturally promote self-confidence; be used to express oneself without the use of words; and strengthen fine and gross motor skills. Some adaptations may include: the use of visuals/pictures to help the child understand the structure of the lesson, playing by color in order to help the child learn how to read music, learning to play songs of interest, and using improvisation to help the child feel comfortable exploring a variety of sounds.
