Music

The music program at Madonna aims to foster a joy and love of music, while supporting our population's general goals. Our classes are designed with the therapeutic power of music in mind. Students will develop basic music skills through singing, moving, playing instruments, and creating music. Through these same activities, we also work towards expanding our students' listening skills, speech, and motor development. We hope that through music our students will develop self-expression and build confidence. Our goal if for every student to enjoy their time in music and gain a love for music they will keep for a lifetime.
