Last Name. Like all good teaching pedagogy it is a combination of many different ideas and practices. Pioneered by Daphne Proietto, it draws on the aural fundamentals of the Suzuki method and her studio piano teaching experience to explore and realize the unique skills that a lot of special needs children have.
Daphne started teaching special needs students at her home in the year Word quickly travelled around musical circles that she was producing amazing outcomes for autistic children using her innate knowledge of the skills that some of these children possess i. Her work often concentrates on basic motor skills early on and bringing the child to an awareness of their aural skills. Daphne has extended her work to include children who have many different disabilities. The deep mutual respect she and her students have for one another is testament to her immense success as a teacher and mentor.
Her concerts simply have to be experienced to be understood. They are a great, joyous celebration of humanity. Her students, some of whom have to deal with enormous social and physical issues, come up to the piano, bow to the audience and then proceed to perform with a level of calmness and concentration that leaves the audience gobsmacked.
Daphne has never received any payment for her work and is fast approaching retirement age. The many families she has helped would love to see her work continue and thus Keys of Life was born.
