Adapted Music Lessons

The ancillary benefits of music lessons for children are numerous:

  • Teaches discipline and patience
  • Results in a sense of achievement
  • Provides an outlet for self-expression
  • Boosts self-esteem
  • Promotes creative thinking skills
  • Improves auditory discrimination
  • Increases hand-eye coordination
  • Builds fine and gross motor skills
  • Develops brain areas involved in language and reasoning

Not to mention the primary benefit… making music is fun!

The opportunity to learn an instrument should not just be available to neurotypical children. Archtop Music Therapy offers in-home music lessons (piano, keyboard, guitar, bass, percussion, drums) for children with special needs. Adapted music lessons meet each student at their level of functioning. For visual learners this may mean alterations to standard music notation using letters, numbers, shapes, or colors. Auditory learners may require more repetition during lessons and recordings to practice along with outside of lesson time. All students are more motivated when their song choices are recognized and welcomed.
