Summary

Students with "exceptionalities" have every right to enjoy and learn from making music. No matter what their exceptionalities may be, neurological, physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioral or trauma-induced, these conditions should not impair their access to the benefits that come from making music. This campaign offers you a chance to help our organization take down the barriers to musical participation by students in special day programs by training their teachers to lead music adaptively.

Challenge

Students with exceptionalities deserve full access to music instruction, adaptive use of instruments and music technology and supportive teaching, but they rarely get this. Instead they are often left out of the arts. To turn this around, teachers need training in differentiating music instruction so students can put their best skills and abilities forward!

Solution

This project will give special educators and education professionals serving students with identified exceptionalities, IEPs and 504 plans the skills and tools to support their students to join in music with their peers! Our Adaptive Music for Achievement in Inclusion and Special Education a.k.a. AMAISE courses and our AMAISE-ing instruments will support everyone to learn and create together every week with percussion, guitar, ukulele, electronic instruments, singing, and movement for learning,

Long-Term Impact

The project will help teachers and specialists receive everything they need to weave music as a tool for learning into the daily experiences of their students with exceptionalities. Over time, teachers who become capable and confident in adaptive classroom music leadership for all will begin to create broader inclusion and access for their students systemically by modeling this shift in their school environments. This campaign can be a helpful tool in bringing about social justice through music.
