Cincinnati Adaptive Music is pleased to announce that this summer, August 4-August 9, we will be hosting our second annual Adaptive Music Camp! This camp will be held on the beautiful campus of The College of Mount St. Joseph, located 20 minutes west of downtown Cincinnati.
This year’s camp is for amputee, limb different, physically challenged and Deaf or hearing impaired students who would like to learn how to play piano, harp, guitar, a stringed instrument (violin, viola, cello, or bass), or a brass instrument (trumpet, French horn, trombone, tuba). We will meet for 6 days, August 4-9 (Monday to Saturday), culminating in a recital on the last day. Each camp day will include a private lesson, group class, music history class, and musicianship skills.
Students and parents will come away from this camp with a framework, or how to play their instrument and several exercises to keep them going until they can find a home teacher to continue their lessons. You will take home individualized videos which describe any adaptive exercises or equipment needed for your child’s lessons to continue, as well as a written plan for scope and sequence of adaptation so that your child can reach his or her full potential over the next year. The idea is that any local teacher you choose can feel comfortable working your family because the groundwork has been laid, and they can feel like they can begin with many of the “kinks” already worked out of the system.
Children and parents will leave the camp with:
- A framework for how to play their instruments
- Exercises to maintain until they find a local teacher
- Any necessary devices or stands
- Individualized videos which describe adaptations and accommodations for your student.
- Music Adaptation Plan which covers the scope and sequence of accommodations and adaptations for the following year.
- Ongoing support for your local private lesson teacher via a free private web forum and free personal consultations.
Once you find your local teacher, your camp teacher is available to consult with you, keeping in touch with family and local teachers to ensure lessons are running smoothly and to help brainstorm any further adaptations.
This camp is intended for those families who are serious about playing an instrument, but need a little help getting started on the road to reaching their full potential. The cost of the camp is $375.
Due to the individual nature of the instruction with the camp, spaces are limited. If you are interested, please contact us at Cincinnatiadaptivemusic@gmail.com
We’re looking forward to working with you!
