A music school that supports the learning process of individuals with physical and cognitive challenges. Music is an effective teaching tool which inspires people. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
We work closely with at risk youth and those with physical and cognitive challenges. The focus area is around equine and animal therapeutic sessions. This treatment promotes physical, occupational and emotional growth for the individuals we work with.
This project to build an arts school is one we have dreamed of doing for a long time. Special Spirit completed the build out of our multi use studio. The funds will be used to equip a fully functioning arts / crafts and music studio. This space will be used to educate and empower the students.
We are going to support at risk youth with their self assurance and public speaking confidence. One way this will be conducted is through music and drama therapy. The practice of using music and drama games in the learning process can be a wonderful way to help to expand ones language, social skills and self-awareness.
Music can be an effective tool to help those with speech and hearing difficulties. When treating speech impediments with music therapy, many times the music therapists will collaborate with speech therapists. The speech therapist will help the music therapists focus on words or speech skills that need to be worked on through music. This can be used adeptly in our music classes.
This rough patch will not slow us down in our hard work or stop us. However, we need the people's support to continue delivering the incredible work we collectively achieve here at special spirit.
