One-on-one Music Sessions at WRTS Preston
Jackie’s One-on-one Music Sessions have been developed to provide an opportunity for children to explore and enjoy music and build connections, confidence and freedom of expression through back-and-forth musical play interactions. Classes are one-on-one and are suitable for non-verbal and verbal autistic/neurodivergent children and children with disabilities ages 2 to 12 years. Sessions are 30 or 50 minutes depending on the child and payment is required on the day of your appointment.
Emphasis is placed on having fun and building children’s confidence, involvement with and appreciation of music. This provides a foundation for music being a useful and pleasurable environment to share experiences with others, create, express and regulate emotions and manage transitions.
