MAC Makes Music’s JAM Courses provide exciting and high quality music making for children between the ages of 6 months - 11 years who have additional needs (including but not limited to physical disability, learning disability, autism, sensory impairment). These courses are perfect for children who love to make music, play with sound, and experiment in a relaxed and nurturing environment.
Our JAM Courses are inclusive and subsidised by our Youth Music grant to champion musical inclusion. Children will explore a range of resources including: music technology, percussion and tuned instruments with activities tailored to their individual needs and interests.
The activities will enable children to:
- Explore a wide range of musical games - to encourage communication and social skills through team work
- Explore a wide range of songs - to help develop: aural, pitch, rhythm and vocal skills.
- Develop movement, co-ordination and fine motor skills.
- Experience sensory stimulation through: listening, playing and identifying different instruments.
When booking our courses, please complete the ‘All About Me’ form on the booking page. This will provide us with the necessary information for our music leaders to plan the sessions to suit the group before the course starts.
Please note, children need to be accompanied by a parent or carer and we encourage all adults in the room to join in and to actively support their child’s involvement.
