It creates opportunities to deepen relationships between children with special needs and their siblings bonding through creative musical play, exploration, and collaboration. Working in partnership with therapy agencies and other community organizations, this innovative program approach includes a blend of structured interactive songs, dances, and musical games as well as musical playtime for siblings to explore and engage in collaborative music-making of their own choosing.
