“Many tears of joy were shed by parents as we witnessed our children participating in these amazing musical achievements.” — APN Parent

“I’m in a band.” — APN Student

Now in it’s 4th year, A Positive Note (APN) is the Colorado Springs Conservatory research-based, music-making program for students with a wide range of disabilities including traumatic brain injury, autistic spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy and Downsyndrome. Participants ages 12 through young adult have the opportunity to:

  • Explore music in an accessible, joyful way under the guidance of a specialized, nurturing faculty
  • Learn to play an instrument
  • Experience the fun and camaraderie of playing in a group
  • Build a sense of accomplishment, self-worth, and cognitive and social involvement

Our measure of success is when students enjoy the process regardless of skill level, and share that joy with others, enhancing the quality of their lives, their loved ones, and the community in which they live.
