A music therapy group for teens Who want help making music with others
Do you know a teenager who wants to improve their musical skills and have fun making music with others? Or maybe you know a teenager who could use some help with their social skills, but you want them to have fun in the process. Perhaps your teenager could use stand to enhance their executive skills and executive function.
Making music as part of a group can be a great way to achieve all of these things. This is particularly true for those kids and teens who face additional social and academic challenges due to ADHD or autism. As a parent, you want to keep them meaningfully busy with summer coming up so that they avoid the “summer slide-back,” but you also don’t want your child to feel like they’re in school or therapy.
Morning Music Jam: A Music Group Designed With Your Teen In Mind
Morning Music Jam is a 4-week summer program for teenagers ages 12 -16. It is a group geared towards teens who don’t have a lot of musical experience but who want to have fun making music with others. Neurotypical and neurodivergent thinkers are welcome to come and play together.
In this group, participants will have the opportunity to learn how to play some of their favorite songs, as well as learn how to create a musical groove with others. Friends may even be created in the process, not to mention an increased dose of self-confidence. If your teen has an acoustic instrument, bring it! If you don?t have an instrument, there will be some available for use during the class.
This group will be offered on Tuesdays at 11 am from 7/10-7/31. $60 for the 4-week session.
