Music - Part 1

Max has always LOVED music.
Since he was a baby he has loved the sounds music makes.  We used to have a CD player in his room when he was newborn, we would play Disney Lullaby's on it.  He then got a Fisher Price Mobile that he LOVED and would even turn it on in the night when he could reach the buttons.

He can memorize music and the beat like nobody else.
It started out with Elmo's world and Yo Gabba Gabba.

It is a amazing to me sometimes he will hear a song once and know the beat and some of the catch words.  He memorizes not only the beat but the motions that go along with it any song.  Currently he loves Phineas and Ferb, Winnie the Pooh and the Muppets, but he will memorize anything with a beat.  Even though he doesn't say most of the words, he knows the inflections. 

For example in the movie cars he knows the music with words, but also the background music and the motions the cars make when they are driving.  

Music calms him.  He is soothed by listening to music, especially music videos.
Story Bots are some of his favorite music videos.
If you haven't see the You Tube Channel for Story Bots you should check it out, they have so many GREAT educational videos and they are done with great animation.

Here is a GREAT story about Music, Chimes and Autism:
