Music Craft for Young People with Disability 15 - 25yrs
Braddon ACT 2612
Our Mixed Ability Program of music groups designed for adults living with disability, uses the powerful (and fun!) medium of music to encourage participants to develop skills in coordination, concentration, social interaction and gain self-confidence.
The tutors for this program are music educators and professional musicians with experience working with people with diverse needs, engaging with musical genres and instruments from many cultures. Participants attend these group sessions with their support workers, who are expected to play an active role in the class
Music Craft for Young People living with disability offers an opportunity for participants to learn musical foundations in a group setting, as a fun introduction to learning music. Through singing, dance and playing percussion and other instruments, students develop rhythmic awareness in a fun and relaxed environment.
Music Craft for Young People offers a supportive environment in which students can make new friends, and build their skills in speech and social interaction through learning in a structured group setting.
The Snow Foundation generously support Music for Canberra’s Mixed Abilities Program of music lessons and groups for people living with a disability.
