Mini Musical Workshop

Goal!


“The Beautiful Game” of Football ... er ... Soccer!

Composers: John Jacobson, John Higgins

 

Did you know that over 13 million Americans play soccer? The game that Brazilian 'football' legend Pele called “The Beautiful Game” is the setting for this amazingly entertaining musical that not only celebrates the beauty and glory of the sport, but also the value of good sportsmanship, setting goals, being a part of a team and more. Goal is a musical that every cast member will love to perform, whether sports is their 'thing' or not. In this musical, nobody is cut from the team, and with musical styles from Latin to Rap and Pop to Broadway, we celebrate setting goals and working as a team to accomplish amazing things together! This 25-minute musical features original songs and script with speaking parts.

 

Each group will learn different portions of the script and both groups will perform together on the day of the recital.

Music Therapy Classes

 

Inclusion of children of all abilities is important primarily for children with special needs. These students sometimes require some additional supports and consultation to make the individual successful and the teacher able to successfully teacher his/her class.  Success in these groups can be reached with buddies or older student mentors as well as finding and joining the class with the best fit.  Not all classes are appropriate for every student so read carefully through each description to find the class which best suits you!

 

Final class will be a time for group participants to share what they have learned over the summer with family and friends who want to attend the last class.

 

All classes will be conducted by a Board Certified Music Therapists from Music To Grow On, Music Therapy Services, who can adapt and support individuals of all abilities.

 

“Music Therapy is the clinical and evidenced-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.  Music therapy is a well-established allied health profession similar to occupational therapy and physical therapy.  It consists of using music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive, behavioral and/or social functioning.  Because music therapy is a powerful and non-threatening medium, unique outcomes are possible.  With children, music therapy provides a unique variety of music experiences in an intentional and developmentally appropriate manner to effect changes in a child’s behavior and facilitate development of his/her communication, social/emotional, sensory-motor, and/or cognitive skills.   Music therapy enhances the quality of life.  It involves relationships between a qualified therapist and child; between one child and another; between child and family; and between the music and the participants.  These relationships are structured and adapted through the elements of music to create a positive environment and set the occasion for successful growth.”  ---American Music Therapy Association

 

Casie Esposito is a Board Certified Music Therapist.
