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.

 
 

Private Drum Lessons

By combing simple phonics with a multi-sensory approach, students learn to play basic grooves and interesting rhythms. (the methodology is effective with nonverbal students too) The lessons are super engaging and fun, and have a positive spillover into areas of cognitive and social development. Get ready to rock!

Private Music Lessons

Using rhythms and music to teach academic concepts to reinforce cognitive development. 

Online lessons for students anywhere in the world.

The online lessons use rhythms to teach positive communication, social skills, and academic concepts. This is no ordinary music therapy protocol: it’s a learning environment that engages students through the power of music. 

The lessons are successful in addressing COGNITIVE, EMOTIONAL, and PHYSICAL goals. Through inventive multi-sensory exercises, the sessions teach and enhance skills such as maintaining focus, using memory, sequencing, sign language, laterality, 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. It is this redundancy of information that facilitates positive results. 

The only equipment necessary is a small hand drum and a computer or iPad with Skype. Call or write for a complementary 20 minute session.
