My special needs students love to come to music class. I look for every modified means possible for us to make and enjoy music together.
I have selected instruments that are not only safe, but easy for students to handle and play.
Many of my special needs students are not able to grasp with their hands (and some students need hand-over-hand assistance to play instruments), so foot tambourines and wrist/ankle bells would be perfect for them. Some students try to put things in their mouth, so I need musical items that are safe for when that does happen. Because of this, I need to be able to easily wash and disinfect the instruments properly.
