MUSICAL LEARNING FOR CHILDREN WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS

Our approach is to achieve musical outcomes whilst adapting individual teaching skills to meet the different needs of each pupil. Music House for Children trains and guides teachers working with needs such as deafness, autism, and physical impairment. Our focus is on developing musical outcomes. Time and again weekly instrumental or group lessons confirms a positive impact on communicative and life skills over time.

 

We have extensive experience working with individuals and groups of children with an early diagnosis or emerging evidence of additional need. Our young clients include those with profound language delay, those with English as an additional language, hearing impairment, cognitive and motor difficulties, ASD and global developmental delay.

 

Our specially chosen tutors work with toddlers up to secondary ages. Group and individual lessons are inclusive, sociable and age appropriate. With a flexible template involving a balanced range of musical activities, we adapt our approach to meet the needs and interests of each child whilst simultaneously meeting learning goals for each child.

MUSIC HOUSE FOR CHILDREN'S MUSIC TEMPLATE

Music House for Children provides a basic template working with 8 modules nurturing specific musical as well as language/communicative based outcomes. This template provides children with a gentle fluid structure that quickly becomes familiar and supportive. The modules offer experiences in various high quality instrumental and visual resources to engage in learning objectives.

 

Each module is adaptable to the preferences and responses of the child.  Music House for Children teachers adapt their skills to meet the needs and ability of each child and manage to achieve learning outcomes too. In all cases, our lessons provide therapeutic outcomes including eye contact, sociable engagement, empowerment and a willingness to participate.

 

WHOLE SENSORY APPROACH

Sound making, vocalising, improvising, composition all form part of a multi-sensory musical adventure. Within whole sensory awakening, we help to build on each child’s strengths with respect to the area of need. An example includes developing language ability by engaging the child in imaginative sound making.

 

CURRICULUM VERSUS LIFE SKILLS

Group and individual music lessons help children to develop an awareness of others and manage new experiences. Since 1994 Music House for Children believes that as a unique person young children learn and adapt to new experiences at their own pace, and level of ability. Positive relationships are encouraged through active participation of the adult as well as the children.
