We’re willing to bet that, like us, you believe music is for everyone, no exceptions. We’ve also heard from so many teachers, whether they work in a classroom or teach private lessons, who need more tools for effectively teaching students who have some of the most common learning disabilities and mental health challenges.In response, our team of music therapists has created this four-part course to help you develop a deeper understanding of each topic and acquire specific, practical tools that make the music education experience truly accessible for everyone.

Inclusive Music Education Course

The topics covered are:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • ADD & ADHD
  • Common Learning Disabilities
  • Anxiety & Depression

In each section of the course, you’ll get a clinical definition and understanding of each topic, learn about common myths and stereotypes so you can move beyond them and help raise the awareness of others around you, understand how each topic relates specifically to music education, and learn strategies for successful teaching.
