Individual Piano Lessons

The Radiant Spectrum provides music lessons for children with special needs in Singapore. We work with a wide range of special needs children. Our students are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), intellectual disability (ID), selective mutism, speech delay and more. Our students are between the ages of four to 20. Prior to starting music lessons, every student must attend a trial assessment so that their learning and behavioural needs can be identified.

Our Approach

Dedicated Teachers

Our teachers are trained to work with children with special needs and focus on building a strong therapist-child relationship so that the child will be a happy and willing learner.

Customised Curriculum

We spend time understanding the child’s strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and set goals for areas that require improvement. Each student is provided with an individualised learning programme, supplemented with songs and worksheets that support his/her interests and considers his/her learning needs.

Gradual Skill Introduction

The music curriculum is deconstructed into smaller units, and introduced to students in a gradual manner. As a student progresses, increasingly difficult challenges are introduced, from finger exercises to note reading, two-hand playing, and duet performances. Teachers remain prepared to assist students who may need to revert to simpler tasks.
