Kay Bernon is a founder of the Berkshire Hills Music Academy in Massachusetts, USA. She will give a special talk for families of individuals with Williams Syndrome in Japan on October 22, 2012 from 10:30am to 12:00pm in the CELESE Meeting Room (51-05-12). Following is a description of the Academy.
The concept of the music academy for special learners originated in Lenox, Massachusetts at a music camp for individuals with Williams syndrome that began in 1994. At Berkshire Hills Music Academy, our students’ passion for music unlocks their talents and helps them to reach their full potential. Whether they are polished performers or just want to learn to play an instrument, our program will give them the motivation to learn the necessary skills to become independent adults while doing something they love.
