Virtual Special Needs Classroom

What an incredible Music Helps Autism Case Study we witnessed the summer  2013.

Five out of seven non-verbal children with autism began saying new words within 4 weeks!  Other children gained incredible life skills.  Your child can experience the same incredible enrichment from your home.

Your child can participate in the exact same structures as our students in the case study!   Read our case study results here.

We have set up our Virtual Music4Me program to follow the same structures as is trumpeted in our book and demonstrated in the Case Study.

This easy, fun music program may unlock your child, changing their life forever.

Selecting the Right Program

 There are many ranges of abilities for children diagnosed with special learning needs.  We accept children where they are… and gently press for more, and it’s important to choose the right program to start with so as to not overwhelm them (and you).  For this reason, once you enroll we may shift you to a different program.  Here are the two basic formats available for you.  A Consultation appointment will be the first step after you sign up.

Our basic Music4Me structures are:

  • Unassisted Virtual Music4Me:  If your child is non-verbal, low functioning or under the age of 4.5,  you may need to start with Unassisted Virtual Music4Me. These active musical participation lessons include the simple special reasoning activities at the piano, puppets, and fun rhythm instruments.  Lessons are fun and varied.
  • Assisted Virtual Music4Me that includes Piano Therapy lessons*.  After you have done the Unassisted Virtual Music4Me structures for a period of time, or if your child is verbal or 5+ years old you may move on to the Assisted Virtual Music4Me Program, which begins a strong piano therapy* program.  Again, even within this program there are choices and ranges as we select the best program for your child.

Assisted Music4Me: Structures and Fees

Our Assisted Music4Me Virtual Program includes the Unassisted Music4Me Video lessons (above) PLUS we add the Kids N Keys structures for increased study at the piano, the number one instrument for brain function enhancement.  This brings your child into a very musical environment, where we target brain enrichment from many sources and angles.  Again this program utilizes the exact same structures as our Music Helps Autism case study  …  that gave such astounding results.

Piano Therapy* Plan: 

Normally, this plan would include the Unassisted program (above) and the materials to do that program.  It would also include the Pre Kids N Keys curriculum or Kids N Keys curriculum for Level 1, depending on the needs/age of your child. Since we lay out a customized program for your child based on their age and needs, booking this program is not as easy as 1, 2,3.  But since we recommend that you start with the same basic materials package as the Unassisted Music4Me above, we use  that structure to Sign up.  Then we move forward in preparing the customized plan for the piano therapy*.

We will email you the lesson plans for each module at no additional charge, or ship them to you for an additional fee.

Fact:  The piano is the instrument of choice for the greatest brain function enrichment.  The more they engage with the piano, the greater the benefit permitting more engagement.  Our program works for students with special needs!  The Power of the Piano may change their life forever!

Here are some parent testimonies from our Autism Case Study …

My 9 year old daughter is doing the Module One Lessons. She gets up every morning saying, "I want music class." She carries her IPAD everywhere she goes with music class going. She just recently began to march her feet while shaking her eggs. A great feat for her! This program is the best ever!

Jane
Music4Me is the most incredible program. I believe this program should be a must for all autistic children, and I believe it should be the first step in them getting help.

Becky

 

This music program is wonderful, and being that the class was only eight weeks long and had the effect it had on my son … has blown my mind.

Tom
This class covers multiple therapies all in one and is essential for the growth of autistic children and it is fun and very entertaining for the children.
