A Powerful Resource for Therapists and Guitar Teachers of Students with Special Learning Needs
By Robert Krout
Therapeutic Guitar is an innovative guitar method that was designed and extensively field tested for students with unique learning and lifestyle needs. Others who might benefit from this book include music therapists, child life specialists, special education teachers, music teachers, camp counselors, and anyone working with people who have medical, emotional, and behavioral disorders. The songs and the therapeutic activities accompanying them make this method a unique experience. While learning chords, strumming, and tunes is fun, being able to meaningfully interact with these songs adds a deeper dimension. This book will impart students with a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, and self-worth, all while highlighting the therapeutic benefits of guitar playing. A CD is included to demonstrate all the examples in the book.
