Settlement Music School
Settlement Music School - Kardon Center for Arts Therapy - Computer Music
This program provides clients with an opportunity to use assistive music technology for self-expression and skill development. Computers dedicated to use with adaptive equipment and software, along with gesture recognition and other adaptive technology, provide an avenue for therapists and students to develop musical relationships. Regardless of developmental levels, the technology enables an avenue for musical interaction and skill building. Many of the technology-based musical experiences for clients with the most severe physical differences are centered around the use of switches, which are essentially customized buttons pressed in any way possible to provide control input to different kinds of devices. They can be positioned on specialized universal mounts that put them near any body part that a person can control.
