Skoog for Music Therapy

$190.00

Skoog is easy to use in Music Therapy sessions – keeping students engaged, while giving them the confidence to express themselves. Skoog is a tactile musical instrument that’s unique in its level of accessibility. Tap it, twist it, or squeeze it: this new music accessory for iPad opens up a world of musical expression to everyone. No matter what your students’ skills, abilities or musical talents.

For many people with disabilities, one of the greatest barriers to making music is the dexterity required to play a more traditional musical instrument. Skoog removes that barrier. Now anyone unable to play traditional instruments can join a band and take part in a range of music-making activities. You can jam with your favorite tracks instantly. Skoog connects wirelessly to iOS devices as well as Mac OS X using the free Skoog app. Easily connect to GarageBand, your iTunes library or music streaming service, and play along with the music. Just choose a song and get playing.

Skoog for Music Therapy comes with an education and support package ($99 value) that includes:

    • Teacher Training
    • Professional Development Class
    • Additional Support and Product Education

Description

Explore and play with Skoog and its supporting apps! Create your own music using the sampling app Skratch or learn how to code, drive and control robots using Skoog in Apple Swift Playgrounds. For users with speech or language barriers, you can even turn your Skoog into a Switch Control and Communication aid with Skoog Access.

Skoog’s universal design enables fun, accessible, expressive music-making for children, parents, teachers and families — including those with disabilities — within just a few minutes of it being taken out of the box. It’s not just sensitive to how hard the Skoog is being touched, but where and how it is being touched, transforming the things you do into meaningful and expressive sounds. Adjustable sensitivity means that you can play Skoog intuitively with any part of your body: hands, elbows, knees or head. Skoog’s sensory-friendly tactile nature helps greatly in developing new skills and promoting physical interaction with technology.
