Virtual Music Adventures Take-Home Class

Join the world of music! Music is a world of movement, jamming with instruments, playing and singing. Children this age with special needs often want to join this musical world but require special consideration for their individual sensory needs. Each family will receive five video playlists of music activities that you and your child can do together on your own time and at your own pace. Since this is a self-paced class, you may schedule your five class days anytime in October through January. We recommend that participants have a few small percussion instruments at home for use during the class (Here is an example).
