The role of music for individuals with Down’s syndrome

Today is World Down’s Syndrome Day!

We love this carpool karaoke lip sync video in support of World Down Syndrome Day featuring 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri’s multi-platinum selling track, “A Thousand Years”.

Music plays a vital role in the lives of many individuals with Down’s syndrome. For some, engaging in creative music making can be restricted by the knowledge or discipline required to develop an instrumental skill. The Skoog removes that barrier, providing an intuitive and accessible platform for music making, either individually or with others, whilst maintaining the opportunity for progression and development.

In recent studies no difference has been found between those with Down’s Syndrome and the standard population in musical skills such as rhythmic discrimination. Using a pupil centered approach, the Skoog can help to create a level playing field for access to the fulfilment and pleasure of performing music.

Discover for yourself the joy and fun of making music.
