Learn about the history of the drum and basic techniques to drumming with Vision Forward’s music therapist, Emily Zajork, MT-BC. Engaging in different music experiences can provide benefits for individuals with visual impairments like developing spatial awareness, orientation, mobility and environmental exploration skills. Music experiences can also help with overall physical rehabilitation, facilitating movement, self-awareness, self-expression, auditory discrimination, sensory stimulation, relaxation and positive coping skills. Participants will receive hands-on training and engage in a drum circle. Instruments will be provided. No prior music experience necessary. Space is limited—register early!
