Other Services

Lotus Centre is an active research centre. Current areas of research include teacher training in special music education, integrated arts education, building community through music education, and the benefits of music education on non-musical areas of development. We are proud to partner with a variety of community organizations and professionals to further develop special music education through research.

Lotus Centre for Special Music Education offers regular teacher training sessions to equip music teachers in the community to work with students with special needs. Please check the "News and Events" page for updates. We also offer sessions on request for professional development days and other professional training.

We offer music workshops both at Lotus Centre or in a school setting for special education classes. Music making is a great addition to educational or therapeutic programming, and is tons of fun! Each workshop is individually designed to meet the needs of the participants. Workshops are available for up to 16 participants age 5 years to adult. Please contact us for more information!
