Adapted Percussion Products That You May Not Have Heard Of:

By bill

In my special education work, I have the opportunity to provide services to a wide variety of student populations, including those who have severe mental and physical disabilities.   Here are a couple of company’s items that may help some of your clients in active music experiences.

There are a few items by Enabling Devices that combine switch technology with instrumental play. A primary example is the Band Jam.    Other items include the adapted bongo drum, and The Music Machine. The Enabling Devices products use a switch-operated motor, allowing for gumball or big mack switches to operate them.

The multiple instrument holders, individual instrument holders, and attachments at A Day’s Work Music Education are hand-crafted and highly durable.

What other adaptive items do you use?  Feel free to comment below.
