This curriculum and guideline was formulated by George Thompson, Performance Arts Director, TERI Inc, and Terri Wiener, MT-BC in collaboration with Remo, Inc. to provide constructive, stimulating and structured music education and therapeutic activities utilizing drums with Comfort Sound Technology™ for individuals/groups with moderate to profound developmental disabilities and autism.This multidisciplinary method provides well-rounded approaches that can be highly effective tools for working on: social skills, music and education goals, self expression, behavior modification and self-confidence. The videos are intended to provide a starting point for activities using the Drum Table with Comfort Sound Technology in homes with families or in schools with educators or direct care providers. For in-depth therapeutic applications, please contact the Certification Board for Music Therapy, to locate a board certified music therapist near you.
We envision that in using this guideline, lesson plan activities, and instructional videos that each participant will be given the opportunity to develop their music/social skills and competencies to their full potential, appropriate to their age and ability in a safe and supportive environment.
