Music Lessons

People of all abilities can benefit from music lessons. Music enriches one’s life in countless ways – but did you know that learning an instrument has been proven to be beneficial? Music can develop and strengthen motor, cognitive, social, emotional, and communication skills.

Playing a musical instrument fosters creativity while developing fine-motor skills, discipline, leisure skills, and self-esteem.  Those with intellectual and developmental disabilities should have the same opportunities as anyone else to learn, create, and perform music. Adaptations to music lessons can make music accessible to all students (Kuester, 2011).
