Just finished two strong music therapy sessions for kids with autism.
I’m tired but happy! Their interactions are a lot more now, after two months of meetings! 🎶🎵
I could hear their voice singing and asking me for tunes; they played the instruments and I saw them really exited keeping the rhythm with the body percussion! Once I finished I took a picture of the classroom and I felt it was so empty!!!
How many elements were not there anymore? What do we really need to run a good session?
Let’s start the list…
- 1. circle music
- 2. relationshiop
- 3. musical games
- 4. jokes
- 5. passion
- 6. experience
- 7. help from the tutor
- 8. curiosity
- 9. mistakes
- 10. a fair amount of luck!
I would be happy to have suggestions!
Noga Ritter improvisation ! we work a lot with SEN children in all ages . Beat-box goes down super well and Loop pedal !!! when they hear their voices played back at them its an enormous affect !
