We Specialize in Music Lessons for Children With Special Needs & Learning Differences
Music is a universal language that can reach children who face learning differences. Whether a child suffers from ADHD, anxiety, autism, sensory issues, or learning differences our in-home music lessons can help special needs children. For twice-exceptional (2e) children, learning an instrument can also be tricky. But with our patient teachers we have seen children excel in guitar lessons, piano lessons, and voice lessons (etc.).
In-home music lessons have the capacity to reach children and offer a window to achievement and success. At Hey Joe Guitar School of Music, we know this to be true. We’ve seen how well children with learning challenges respond to music education.
We have seen increased self-esteem and confidence among children who learn a musical instrument. Research from The Journal of Music Therapy shows that musical instrument can improve a child’s ability to focus and pay attention.
While we are not therapists, we have seen how the study of music has helped children with ADHD, anxiety, and low self-esteem.
Music education can improve a child’s ability to concentrate, control impulses and function better in social settings. Studies show children have develop life-long friendships through the study of music.
What did Oliver Sacks, M.D., professor of neurology at Columbia University and author of Musicophilia say? “Nothing activates the brain so extensively as music.”
