Adaptive Music Lessons
Has your child ever had the desire to learn to play an instrument?
If you have been unable to find a teacher that can meet your child’s needs, you may find that working with a music therapist may be the approach to take. A music therapist is trained to use and teach music in a way that is adapted and tailored to an individual’s current skill and functioning level. As music therapists consult with occupational and physical therapists when addressing fine motor goals, they can use a therapeutic approach to enabling their students to build and grow their musical skills. If you are interested in adaptive lessons for piano, ukulele, or guitar please inquire.
