How it works
Private Piano Lessons
Teaching a mainstream collection of music written in an alternative language that enhances cognitive development. The lessons occur in an environment of empathy, caring, and patience while being void of distraction and unnecessary stimuli.
The lessons help students with many core issues:
- Cognitive Gain
- Expanded Attention Span
- Posture Strengthening
- Confidence Building
- Ocular Motor Strengthening
- And Other Areas Of Improvement
The lessons are very effective for highly impacted and non-verbal students.
Percussion Ensemble Classes
Stephen Flinn uses drums and percussion to teach social skills, positive communication and academic concepts using the Rhythmic Arts Project protocol.
The method is successful in addressing COGNITIVE, EMOTIONAL, and PHYSICAL goals. Through inventive multi-sensory exercises, the program teaches and enhances skills such as maintaining focus, using memory, socialization, turn taking, sequencing, sign language, laterality, developing leadership, recognition and use of numbers, shapes and colors, spatial awareness, fine and gross motor coordination, following instructions, and communication.
Through a perceptual motor match: VISUAL, TACTILE and AUDITORY combined with SPEECH, the student sees the lesson, feels it, and then hears it as he/she speaks or sings the answers. (Great for non-verbal students too) It is this redundancy of information that facilitates positive results.
