For over 28 years we have worked with kids and adults with a range of special needs and abilities. Our musical instruments are simple, approachable, and can help lead to deeper understandings in science, sustainability, and the arts - as well as presenting an opportunity to create as a community.


All of our in-school performances and workshops are suitable for students who are mainstreamed in classrooms.

For special needs schools, classrooms, and adult groups we prefer to find out about your participants first, and then propose a program that makes sense for their needs and goals. From a performance to workshops, all events are flexible and scalable; plus our performers and teaching artists have years of experience working with those with special needs!
