The Autism Alliance in partnership with Meridian Music Therapy is offering a music-based program that fosters experiences that are used as interventions designed to combat isolation symptoms, support socialization, self-regulation, and self-validation. Using a variety of popular music apps, participants engage in composition by manipulating musical elements and structure such as pitch, rhythm, timbre, texture, and form to create original songs. Opportunities are given to each group member to contribute preferences for compositional design by either selecting from a bank of available options or by being given remote control of the screen to create uniquely original music. This program is facilitated by Anthony C. Varga, DMA, MT-BC, NMT and supported by Allison Daigle, CTRS.

 All abilities are welcome!
