Autism & Music is a 501(c)(3) certified non-profit organization with the mission of spreading autism awareness through music-interaction activities.
We strive to build a more inclusive and accepting society by hosting music, art, and sports activities for individuals with all abilities.
WHO WE ARE
Autism&Music was founded in Miami, FL in 2013 when Patricia Kayser discovered a strong connection between music and her brother Christian, who has autism. She had never seen him so interested in any other activity or game, which motivated her to keep learning about music so she can share more time with her brother. Soon she noticed that Christian’s social, motor, and cognitive skills were improving as he spent more time interacting with instruments and new sounds.
