Adapted music lessons are taught by our board-certified music therapists who specialize in working with children and teens with special needs.
We use our training and clinical experience to come up with creative adaptations for teaching special learners. We strive to help each individual feel successful when learning the instrument and enjoy the experience.
We provide lessons on the following instruments:
In addition to acquiring the skills to play the instrument, your child will have the opportunity to work on: improving receptive language skills, improving fine motor skills, and increasing sustained attention and impulse control. They’ll also have the opportunity to develop their musicality and self expression through improvisation and composition.
Thinking outside the box is our forte.
Here are just some of the creative adaptations and special things we can incorporate into our lessons to engage your child in learning:
You’ll regularly find us jamming to the Beatles and Taylor Swift in a piano lesson, writing songs in a voice lesson, and playing a game of Musical Symbols Go Fish in a guitar lesson.
Many of our students enroll in a Music Therapy/Adapted Lesson combo. This service is one hour in total and allows the student the opportunity to develop non-musical skills (such as increasing attention and communication skills) while also developing musical skills on their instrument of choice.
Wholesome Harmonies is a provider for the Gardiner Scholarship and Wellcare/Staywell Medicaid, both of which cover our services at 100%. We take care of billing on your behalf.
