Hello. My name is Shane Harvey, I am HCPC registered Senior Music Therapist from Northern Ireland. In my clinical work I address the development of children and adolescents living with visual impairments, physical impairments and complex needs. Recently, I acquired a Skoog and it has quickly become an asset in my music therapy instrument "tool-kit," providing an effective means for shared communication. The Skoog's touch-sensitive responsiveness means that it can bypass some of the more stringent physical playing demands made by conventional musical instruments.
This is more than just a sound making object, it’s a great way for young people to be introduced to making expressive sounds, and in time, music... The Skoog, though silly and fun loving on the outside, contains within it the serious potential to turn anyone into a musician and enjoy the satisfaction of musical expression.
Much newer to music making, but quickly becoming established, is the Skoog from Skoogmusic (SN81, www.skoogmusic.com)...It means that people with all sorts of disabilities and none, can create authentic instrumental sounds and join in with music making.
