The Adaptive Music Partnership (AMP) connects music and special education to improve students’ lives, targeting social/emotional, academic, and artistic development.
Over 20% of the student population in Springfield have special needs, and this number is increasing.
Music is a proven
and effective tool to unlocking learning potential in special needs students, yet the majority of this
not have access to musical instruction that is adapted to their needs.
We work directly with special needs students in the classroom, teaching music classes designed to
include all learners.
We train and support music teachers in strategies and techniques for reaching their special education
also train and support special education teachers in integrating music and arts into their teaching.
We have assembled an advisory board of top directors, professors, and innovators of music/arts special
education programs in Massachusetts.
