Community Music School is now offering new programs for children and adults with special needs. Costs and other details are in the school’s winter catalog, which can be found at or requested by phone at (716) 884-4887.

In January, the school began offering adaptive lessons in piano, guitar, voice, flute and recorder. These one-on-one sessions are for people of all ages who have special needs. Jamie Rowitsch, a board-certified music therapist, will provide the lessons.

Individual music therapy sessions are also available for people with various diagnoses, including dementia, medical conditions and developmental disabilities. In the half-hour sessions, Rowitsch will use music as a form of therapy to help participants reach their individual treatment goals.

Currently through March, Rowitsch will also teach a group class called “Music Therapy for Social Skill Success” for children ages 6 to 12. The classes will use instruments, singing and movement to promote friendship and social skills in children with special needs. The class will be held at the school’s main location, 415 Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo.
