Adapted Instrument Instruction
Many individuals with special needs show interest in learning to play a musical instrument, but need creative, multi-sensory modes of instruction to experience joy and success with their music. At Piano Plus, we specialize in designing and implementing teaching strategies which enable special learners to discover the pleasure and other benefits of learning to play a musical instrument .
The teaching strategies at Piano Plus are designed to succeed with all types of special needs. Through a program of individually tailored instruction, which is responsive to the physical, cognitive and social and emotional needs, individuals of all ages are given the opportunity to explore their preferred music styles and play the songs they love!
Our multi-faceted expertise (as piano, keyboard or guitar teachers, special educators and music therapists) enables us to effectively teach people with cognitive, physical, social and emotional challenges. In adaptive instrument instruction, the teacher uses techniques to meet the special instructional needs of the student and thus facilitate and maximize the student's mastery of his or her chosen instrument.
