Hello Fellow Kompozers! When I am not making music with this wonderful community, I spend my time teaching music to individuals with disabilities. This is something I have done for over 11 years. Creating an environment, which fosters my student's creativity, while providing the necessary accommodations needed to create a successful musical experience is my main goal. My aim as a music educator is to allow access to the pleasures of music making for all of my students. Music for All: An Inclusive Keyboard Method Book is the culmination of my work, as it focuses on creating a keyboard method book geared towards enabling learners of all cognitive abilities access to learning the keyboard. Music for All: An Inclusive Keyboard Method Book is geared not only to music educators, but for teachers of all students, as well as caregivers, as it not only teaches the splendors of music, but promotes advancement within the areas of fine-motor skills, cognitive development, and independence. My hope is that Music for All: An Inclusive Keyboard Method Book can be the key, which allows all learners access to the splendors of music making. If you know anyone that can benefit from Music for All: An Inclusive Keyboard Method Book I ask that you please share it with them, as my goal is to help build inclusivity within the world of music. Music for All: An Inclusive Keyboard Method Book is available as both paperback and Kindle. Below is a link to purchase the book: Amazon US: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0BFV9L75G Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0BFV9L75G Amazon CA: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0BFV9L75G Amazon IT: https://www.amazon.it/dp/B0BFV9L75G

Amazing! This really blends my love of music with my professional work, so I really thank you for sharing. :) I both have a disability myself (ASD) as well as work as a general teacher to those with disabilities for my local school district. I would really consider purchasing this! You rock!!

I actually have recently been working on a Youtube channel on the topic: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8p0I5rSq5WrC6qA1yoPQPw/videos and maybe I should review your book? I think it would be a wonderful way to incorporate my love of music into my channel that is otherwise not music-related. :) Would I have permission to do that?

Thank you for your support Mike! I developed the book to reach all of my students, as I could not find a curriculum and/or method book that allowed my students to reach their full potential. The book has worked wonders with my students at both the middle school and high school levels; a large percentage whom have ASD. My hope is that more individuals can use this book to unlock the wonderful gifts of music. That being said, I would be honored for you to feature it on your YouTube channel! Honestly, I am blown away that you are willing to feature it! From the bottom of my heart: thank you for the love and support you are showing me Mike!
