Our Perspective

The sub-title says it all.  This book/CD set is easy to follow, contains a song or two for every new chord learned, and activity ideas to go along with that song.  If you are looking for some new therapeutic ideas, want to brush up on or learn some new guitar skills, or are trying to teach a student with special needs, this book is for you!  -Jenny

Therapeutic Guitar
A Powerful Resource for Therapists and Guitar Teachers of Students with Special Learning Needs
By: Robert Krout

Therapeutic Guitar is an innovative guitar method that was designed and extensively field tested for students with unique learning and lifestyle needs. Others who might benefit from this book include music therapists, child life specialists, special education teachers, music teachers, camp counselors, and anyone working with people who have medical, emotional, and behavioral disorders. The songs and the therapeutic activities accompanying them make this method a unique experience. While learning chords, strumming, and tunes is fun, being able to meaningfully interact with these songs adds a deeper dimension. This book will impart students with a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, and self-worth, all while highlighting the therapeutic benefits of guitar playing. A CD is included to demonstrate all the examples in the book.
