Day/Date: Every Sunday until December 22.
Jesse Neuman's MusicWorks is a weekly interactive music experience which brings out the best in kids with disabilities/special needs through confidence building exercises, structured expectations, clear goals, and respectful collaborations.
Music is a proven means to providing emotional comfort and relief in ways which can be adapted to meet the needs of individual children. Exposure to various styles of music, sounds, rhythm and song provides a therapeutic environment and allows children to explore different cognitive modalities. MusicWorks--small ensembles comprised of a rotating cast of professional performers and teachers--encourages creativity, helps increase a child's confidence, focus, leadership and learning through playing instruments, singing and improvisation.
At Extreme Kids & Crew, MusicWorks will bring a duo of musicians (with instruments changing weekly) to perform songs, games, musical stories, and dramatic activities with children ages 5-12. For more information about Jesse Neuman and/or MusicWorks visit http://www.musicworksnyc.org/
