The series is based on Annual Subscriptions of $39.99 (USD) or $47.99 (AUD/NZ) each year.
To pre-order, send an email via the enquiry form. The first release is due in early 2017.
This Music Interaction Program (This Way In To Music) series program generally consists of:
SIX (6) ACTUAL DEMONSTRATION-BASED EPISODES featuring singer Alex Smith working with parents, carers, teachers and children with neuro-developmental differences as they participate in the suggested music-based engagement strategies. Sibling participation is encouraged but is optional. Families with children living with NDD who are typically aged between 6 and 18 and living with different types of neuro-developmental challenges will be invited to participate in the filmed sessions to help other parents and teachers learn interaction strategies to socially engage children using music. This may result in potentially transferable social and communication skills unique to the individual child or family, but the aim of TWIM is primarily to reduce social isolation.
SPECIAL GUEST APPEARANCES with leading Academics, Authors, Musicians and Actors or others who are in the spotlight who have raised (or are currently raising) children with neuro-developmental differences OR who want to share their music approaches or thoughts about the power of music.
FOUR (4) INTERVIEWS with Parents or Carers who are struggling with day-to-day challenges of living with a child who has a neuro-developmental condition impacting communication and behaviours.
2 CLASSROOM Demonstrations
We use music interaction strategies in filmed sessions with families with children with mild, moderate and severe communication difficulties and/or cognitive impairment and/or sensory sensitivities.
