Finding the WOW! Magic in Music with Reach 4 Real

Just a few weeks ago, we began an awesome new program that really brings the musical WOW! Magic to our Guests and Residents. The Real School of Music’s Reach 4 Real program is an adaptive music program that travels to ATI’s Campanelli location once a week, teaching our Guests from Specialized Housing‘s ISS and IHS programs about Music Through the Decades.

Through this program, the Campanelli cafeteria gets a weekly dose of WOW! Magic as it is transformed into a music studio when teachers Terry and Olivia arrive with their equipment.

Terry and Olivia guide our Guests and a few lucky Colleagues in singing, dancing, writing, and even rapping. So far, we’ve listened to Swing Music, the Blues, and Early Rock and Roll.

Throughout the process, we are learning a bit of music theory and how to really listen to a song. The teachers are using our words to write a song that we will be performing for family and friends at the last class in June. So, stay tuned to hear a masterpiece at our June premiere, and in the meantime, check out photos from our first few classes below.
