- MusicMates is doing good work for good people — people who “come to life” when they engage with music. I know because I play for them. They love music because music brings something out of them that nothing else does.
Our son Benjamin has been taking part in the Music Mates program for 2 years. Ben is diagnosed with Autism. Since Ben has had access to this program and the very qualified staff he has grown tremendously! Music Mates does a fantastic job in engaging children and adults in music. As a parent and an observer it’s amazing to watch our kids change and react to the environment the staff create through music. Not only is it therapeutic the staff use music to teach our kids and adults coping strategies, social skills, academics and calming techniques.
My son Patrick has been going to MusicMates for a few years now. He loves it and is well supported by the staff there. He needs one on one supervision and the MusicMates staff makes sure he is completely involved in the activities. He has learned to catch the beat, play drums and participate in some dance routines. It is a highlight of his week during the year and the camp in the summer makes him really happy. He also has made some friends there which is not easy for him to do.
