Music provides a strong therapeutic and sensory experience. The emphasis is on enjoyment as students undertake new musical challenges.
We have a well-equipped music facility at the Elham Valley Vineyard site, where students can join in music sessions, sing with a guitar and play musical instruments.
Dancing is always a highlight of the session. Students turn the room into a disco complete with glitter ball, flashing lights and loud music! After dancing, they can relax by listening to soft sensory music.
Each month, we are visited by an external music instructor. These sessions are open to all and are less formal in approach. They can involve dancing, mime, playing basic or improvised instruments, discussion and quizzes. The students have the opportunity to experience all kinds of music, from pop and opera to film and stage shows.
