Making music with young people on the autistic spectrum

Earlier this year, music and autism specialist Tina Pinder from KimNara Music, delivered a Sound Connections training session about ‘Music & Autism: Creating a social & participant-led environment’.  Participants said that they “would highly recommend” the course, that it gave “loads of ideas” and that it was “very worthwhile [and provided] useful tools to use.”  With this in mind, we wanted to find a way to share the learning more widely.  Sound Connections commissioned Tina to create a short booklet of practical hints and tips for music-making with autistic participants.  The booklet supports readers to understand how autistic people experience the world; makes suggestions about lesson and workshop planning; offers guidance about activities and repertoire; and shares thoughts about communication and interaction with autistic people.

Whether you are an experienced music and autism practitioner, or are interested in exploring this fascinating and rich field, you’ll find valuable suggestions and reflections in the booklet.
