If your child or adolescent wants to learn an instrument and has either tried traditional lessons that weren’t the right fit, or you feel they might be more successful learning from someone with the education and training to better meet their needs, adaptive lessons might be for you.
What are adaptive lessons?
Adaptive lessons are lessons taught by a board-certified, state-licensed music therapist. This means that the therapist can apply therapy techniques and a much deeper knowledge regarding your child’s needs to the lesson experience than a typical teacher can offer. Music therapists have the knowledge, training and experience to adapt language, learning materials, lesson structure and more to meet your child where they are and help them to be successful in learning an instrument.
What instruments are available for adaptive lessons?
Currently, we offer adaptive lessons for piano, voice, guitar and ukulele.
Will my child get to perform on his or her instrument?
If and when they are ready, yes! One of the benefits of being part of a larger music studio is that our adaptive students have full access to all of the company’s performance opportunities, including our large company-wide recitals and other smaller events throughout the year. We take great pride in having our adaptive students perform alongside their peers. Our music therapists always work to ensure that adaptive students participating in our performance events are set up to be successful and build their confidence and self-esteem.
Where do we go for lessons? How long are they? How often will we have lessons?
At this time, we exclusively offer in-home lessons, so your music therapist will come right to you to provide your adaptive lessons. We are pleased to be able to offer this convenience when so many other activities and therapies our students are involved in require a commute. We make final decisions on an individual basis, but typical lessons are once per week and last 30 minutes.
