Goal

Our goal is to provide our students a different way to experience and create music.  

 

What will be done with my students

The Skoog is an interactive instrument that allows students to touch, wipe, squeeze, poke and twist to produce sound. Each side and color of the Skoog can be programmed to a different instrument sound. The teacher can then adjust the sensitivity of the instrument for each student so that all students can make music successfully. The students will be able to perform and create music using the Skoog. http://www.skoogmusic.com 

 

Benefits to my students

The students at Nina Harris all love music, however some have physical challenges that prohibit independent music making in our traditional sense. Some students many not have the fine motor skills to hold an instrument or the dexterity to play small instruments. The Skoog will allow our students to make music with the swipe of their finger or the hit of their fist. The students will be able to learn and recognize "cause and effect." Our hope is that the use of the Skoog will motivate the students to continue using their independent movement to create wonderful sounds.  

 

Describe the Students

The students at Nina Harris range in age from three to twenty-two. All of our students have moderate to severe Intellectual Disablities and many have physical challenges as well. Our students love music and learning, but many need assistance to be successful as they strive for independence and a way to communicate.
