SECTIONS: Music for Mental and Physical Health Music for Lifelong Learning COUNTRY: Costa Rica PROJECT: A LATIN PERCUSSION ENSEMBLE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS CHILDREN: ENSAMBLE DE PERCUSIÓN INCLUSIÓN DESCRIPTION: The project began in 2000 as a way to provide the opportunity for music learning and performance to students from age five to forty with Asperger or Down syndromes, autism, cerebral palsy, and hearing impairments, among other conditions and syndromes at the Music School of Mercedes located in the mostly rural northern province of Heredia. The objective of the program is to promote the expressive and creative musical potential of these people with special needs through a Latin percussion workshop. At every session, the students are guided into full, sequenced group activities as a percussion ensemble. They learn percussion performance techniques, especially Latin percussion (i.e. samba, meringue, and salsa), in accordance to their physical capacities. In addition, the students are also encouraged to explore their potential as musicians and team members. Confidence, perseverance, and creativity are only some of the pivotal values developed in the learning and performing processes. Since the outset of the project, the ensemble director foresaw the need to transcend formal music learning in order to stimulate the performing and expressive potential of students. Becoming an independent ensemble contributed to achieving this goal. The ensemble director reports a significant improvement in physical skills (i.e. motor coordination) mental health (i.e. concentration skills, confident and optimistic attitudes, positive self-image) and social skills (i.e. communication with peers) in students, and overall a more productive life. CURRENT STATUS: The ensemble has presented almost 300 concerts in schools, universities, government institutions, churches, throughout the country. Despite its success, the program still requires funding, material, and logistical support to continue carrying out its work.
