Supportive Family Class

All Children are Musical! Supportive Family Classes for Special Needs Families
Families with children with special needs often find that Music Together® classes fill their need for a welcoming, community-based experience the whole family can enjoy. In many cases, the Music Together family class format is perfect. However, some families may find a smaller, more intimate classroom environment to be a better fit. These classes are an extension of the Music Together philosophy to accept and include all participants, regardless of any apparent ability or disability. 

Supportive family classes are for children with health challenges and developmental disabilities as well as their traditionally developing siblings and friends. These classes follow the same curriculum as our regular mixed-ages classes, but their smaller class size and relaxed pacing can make them ideal for children with special needs. 
Supportive family classes offer support and information that may be specifically helpful to parents and caregivers of children with special needs. They’re also a great support for siblings.  

  • Enrollment capped at seven
  • Class lead by Carol Ann Blank, Ph.D., LCAT, LPC, MT-BC
    Manager of Research and Special Needs Services for Music Together Worldwide
  • Each session is 10-weeks long and the classes are 45 minutes in length. 
  •  Families also receive unlimited makeups during the 10-week session, and while we don’t offer more than one Supportive Family class, it is still perfectly appropriate to attend a Mixed Aged Music Together class as a make-up.

  • We will request that you fill out an information form in order for us to gain a better understanding of your child’s current developmental need areas. Answers to these questions will be taken into consideration when planning sessions to ensure a more productive, focused group.
