Gateway for Special Needs

The Simply Music Gateway Program is taught by Licensed Simply Music Teachers, and is a playing-based piano method designed for anybody with special needs and learning differences, including those on the Autism spectrum, as well as those with learning disabilities, neurological dysfunction, developmental delays, and ADHD.

It provides a new means of self-expression through music, and gives students the opportunity and ability to play the piano and experience music making without the need to acquire the technical, theoretical and physical skills and attributes typically associated with traditional methods of piano learning.

“My adult daughter with special needs has been taking piano lessons with Debbie for 5 months. Debbie has been wonderful in helping her to learn by making modifications that accommodate her abilities. Debbie is always positive and encouraging and has a way of bringing out the best. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to enjoy the world of piano.” – Irene
