Jupiter’s first handbell choir engaging out-of-school special needs adults will continue throughout the fall and spring! This session, developed by special needs parents Donna Maheady and Vicki Silver, will show other families and supporters how playing music can teach hands-on learners teamwork, social interaction and communication skills.
