What are Adaptive Lessons?

We provide adaptive music lessons to offer children of varying abilities and needs the opportunity to learn how to become a musician. In adaptive lessons, we address the developmental needs of each child through therapeutic interventions with the end goal of learning to play a musical instrument. We will employ learning techniques best suited to your child to foster the understanding and execution of music theory, aural skills, singing/instrument techniques, practice skills, and performance techniques. A member of our team of board-certified and licensed music therapists will teach each adaptive lesson and keep therapy notes of your child’s progress from week to week.  We provide adaptive lessons in voice, guitar, piano, and ukulele.

Goals of Adaptive Lessons

We believe that being a musician is for all, not just those who wish to pursue a career in music. Singing or playing of a musical instrument involves the whole brain, and provides the person with a unique experience to improve his/her auditory, motor, visual, and creative skills at one time. Through adaptive lessons we will address the following goal areas:

-Fine motor coordination

-Self Expression

-Task Analysis

-Attention Span

-Visual and Auditory Processing

-Cognitive Development

         We are so excited to begin offering adaptive lessons in a band setting! As a team, we have realized the need for our kiddos to build meaningful relationships with their peers. Music gives people a unique opportunity to build community together--by building creative and beautiful products together! For all of human history, people have built society around song--it is our means of expressing the experiences of life together. This is why we have chosen to offer adaptive lessons in a small group setting of 2-3 kiddos. In this setting, kids will learn how to play an instrument of their choice (piano, percussion, ukulele, guitar, or voice) while also learning how to play with other people. The goals of these groups are two-fold. On one hand, learning an instrument builds individual cognitive and fine motor skills, and on the other, learning to play music with other people builds listening, group cooperation, and social skills. Our hope is that through adaptive lesson small groups, our kiddos will learn autonomy and self-confidence of being individually responsible for their own part, while also learning to work with and build meaningful relationship with their fellow group members. This group setting is for kiddos that want to build social skills, and want to build musical skills, but need a therapeutic setting to do so. The great thing about this group, is that it is for kiddos that may have some experience on an instrument or no experience at all! To find out if adaptive lesson groups would be best for your child, call Perry Wright LPMT, MT-BC (229-347-2767). MT will have a consultation with the family to form bands.
