Piano For All Children


Piano education for children with exceptionalities

At Brookline Music School, we are committed to offering music education to all children. Our research-based piano classes provide developmentally appropriate, creative, and engaging instruction, guiding children to develop the skills necessary for formal music learning and a lifelong enjoyment of music.

Piano for All Children provides developmentally appropriate piano instruction to children who fall outside the range of typical development in the social, psychological, cognitive, motor, or emotional realms. 

Piano for All Children offers adapted Music Moves For Piano classes with:

  • teachers trained to work with children with exceptionalities
  • resources and support throughout the term to promote success
  • smaller class sizes (capped at three students)
  • options for students to follow the curriculum in private lessons or shared classes (two students)

Music Therapy Info

What is Music Therapy?

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. In music therapy sessions, music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals.

How Does Music Therapy Make a Difference?

Music stimulates all of the senses and involves the client at many levels, facilitating multiple developmental skills, encouraging socialization, self-expression, communication, and motor development. Our board-certified music therapists use music-based interventions in a clinical setting to help clients achieve individualized goals.

Who Can Benefit from Music Therapy?

Music therapy is for people of all ages with various strengths and needs. The list includes:

  • People with language, motor, and other developmental delays
  • People with exceptionalities such as Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Children, teenagers, and adults with mental health needs
  • Adults who have experienced stroke or traumatic brain injury
  • Adults with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia
