Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.

Exceptional Needs

The Junior Academy of Music practices inclusion. Our classes are process-oriented with an emphasis on individual achievement and a wide spectrum of success. Children of all needs and abilities are welcome.

Sensory & Active

Our program’s unique focus on sensory development & movement is ideal for children with exceptional needs. The study of music, combined with deliberate rhythmic movement, activates the senses and refines both gross and fine motor movement. Both vestibular and proprioceptive senses are engaged and enhanced throughout each class session.

Language

Students are immersed in rich, poetic literature throughout each class and are encouraged to incorporate it in a variety of meaningful modes of communication. Familiar songs, call-and-response games, and silly sounds promote language acquisition, providing motivation for your child to use his or her voice in purposeful ways.

Social Skills & Readiness

Focused listening, taking turns, and appropriate social interaction is practiced in each and every class session, better preparing students for long-term success in school. Students develop the capacity to think collaboratively, creatively, and analytically — skills fundamental to developing the next generation of world-problem-solvers.

What our Parents say

  • Miss M-E is our favorite music teacher! Always in control, she is patient and full of kindness. A joy of music and teaching exudes from her–just the kind of person that parents and students both love to learn from! She was even able to captivate my very active 4 year old son! As a fellow music instructor, she is both an inspiration and a role model.

    — Teresa Linn (Musikgarten teacher, parent, & professional musician) —
  • We enjoyed this class so much! Robby doesn’t always immediately warm up to people but he took to her right away. Thanks for the great music experience!

    — Robby's grandma —
  • Mary-Elizabeth’s classes are very creative and so innovating! She has such a love for children and only wants to see them prosper and grow. She carries herself with such a positive attitude; she believes anyone of any age and ability can succeed.

    — Becky Cavaliere (parent and exceptional education behavior assistant) —
  • Tessa has loved having Ms. M-E as a teacher (and I’ve been really impressed with her energy and talent). Simply put, she’s the best!
