Music Making

Listen to the Hello song with Luke,

and see how he responds to the music.

Music Therapy promotes speech and improves communication skills.

Luke an “Angel” (Angelman Syndrome), looks into the mirror, locates the therapist, and joyfully communicates with an open awareness.

Music Therapy increases attention span and focus.

Luke, who is constantly in motion, settles down with a concentrated affect, focuses for an extended period of time, and inventively explores the piano in unique ways. ┬áLuke utilizes his pointer and other fingers, creates patterns, glissandos (sliding upwards and downwards on the piano keys), explores function buttons, etc…, and spontaneously expresses himself.
