You don’t have to be musical to work with MY MUSIC DESIGN but of course you can.

MY MUSIC DESIGN ori­gi­na­ted from a pro­ject at an ortho­pe­dic children’s day care cen­ter. For two years we were able to work with the child­ren and the team, devel­o­ping the method step by step. All songs, music, beats and bac­king tracks were pro­du­ced espe­ci­al­ly for this method.

MY is about you and the child, young per­son, adult or elder with a devel­op­men­tal delay. We are going to teach you to offer acti­vi­ties that suit them and you.

MUSIC stands for itself (obvious­ly).

DESIGN stands for desig­ning, making vari­a­ti­ons. You cre­a­te tho­se yourself based on the child’s need and interest.

MY MUSIC DESIGN is descri­bed in a work­book: in it you will find a com­pre­hen­si­ve intro­duc­ti­on, expla­na­ti­ons on how to work with blue­tooth boxes, a descrip­ti­on of how to build your music acti­vi­ty, a the­ma­tic acti­vi­ty eve­ry month for a year and the lyrics and chords of the songs. You will also find some indi­vi­du­al music activities.

The songs and bac­king tracks can be found on all onli­ne music pro­vi­ders. The bac­king tracks sup­port you to int­ui­ti­ve­ly make music yourself. Alongside the com­ple­te the songs you will also find a ver­si­on wit­hout vocals so that you can sing along yourself.

The trai­ning
We are hap­py to come to your loca­ti­on for a day or part of a day. After a gene­ral intro­duc­ti­on you will expe­rien­ce that you do not have to be musi­cal to be able to offer music adap­ted to the needs of the child. You will make your own music with enough spa­ce for your own ide­as and we will teach you some songs from the work­book. So you can always offer yourself what suits you and the child: a struc­tu­red offer of song and acti­vi­ties. Or do you take the free­dom, sup­por­ted by our bac­king tracks, to cre­a­te and devel­op your own music?

After the trai­ning you will have suf­fi­cient skills, con­fi­den­ce and inspi­ra­ti­on to start making music yourself.
