Loving the guitarA sweet little seven year old girl presented herself with very limited muscle movement.  When I would play my class welcome song on the guitar, I would get a big smile, but that was it, although we always made sure she had bells around her wrist so that a teacher could move her arm to make some sound.  During the third term of weekly sessions with her class, during her favourite song ( I could tell by her smiles) she lifted her own arm up several times to shake her bells.

This was a huge achievement for her and massive insight into what further physical movement she may be capable of.
