Featuring a variety of adaptive musical equipment, music services are designed to allow participants the opportunity to create and explore the complexities of music, sound, rhythm, and movement.
Participants can play a variety of musical instruments including keyboards, drums, xylophones, cymbals, triangles, tuba, guitar, viola, bells, and hand bells through the use of adaptive switches and software programs.
Using our pre-programmed musical keyboard allows one to select and choose the music to be "played." Manipulating our "honky-tonk" organ provides the ability to play the organ without using any manual dexterity.
Using our karaoke machine provides an opportunity to discover how sound is amplified and projected.
Singing and movement allow for exploration of the voice and body and the connection between both.
Residents can explore the sound and vibration through the music chair. With this special chair, the vibrations of the music are received through the chair.
Participants explore all types of music styles, learning about different musical genres and composers, moving to music, and creating music and sound.
