Available Classes:

Elementary & Middle School

Elementary and middle school classes are an exciting introduction into the world of adaptive music programming.  Students participate in a variety of physically engaging activities through which they explore a combination of music, movement, and rhythm.  Students will sing about topics that are important to them such as, “Today I Feel _____” or, “I’m A Star Because ______.”  Each student has opportunities to express themselves through their personal contribution to an original musical composition. Then, we work to stage, choreograph, and perform a live show as a group. The resulting sense of accomplishment and belonging is a profoundly meaningful experience for all participants.

High School & Adult

Like our classes for younger students, classes for high school students and adults deliver a unique experience, through which class participants work together as a team on music and drama-play activities that build self-esteem, peer relationships, creativity, and self-expression.  They will develop their own songs as a group on topics such as their “Favorite Thing to Do” and “Groovin’ to the Music.”  The class will culminate in an exciting live performance for friends, family, and the general public.  At the end of each class day, students will also participate in a dance party, as well as a celebration of their successes of the day!

“School music classes can be a challenge, as Noah often can not keep up with his peers, and the larger school concerts can be overwhelming.  Reach 4 Real has been the perfect fit, giving Noah an opportunity to express himself through music in a comfortable and welcoming environment.  He is able to learn about music through games and various body movement exercises.  We look forward to our hour each week when Noah can be part of a music class that is perfect for him..”
