Episode 6. We had the pleasure of interviewing the very accomplished Rudy David of Thermal and a Quarter fame. A songwriter and composer who has worked with some incredible names in the industry. But here with us, he is the founder and creator of Hum Drum. An incredible music program built for neurodiverse children and adults. He walks us through his journey of how Hum Drum was created and how it was the autistic children and adults who pretty much told him how they learn.
Note from Nush Lewis: What stood out for me while interviewing Rudy was the fact that he WAS NOT a special educator. He took help from special educators, therapists, parents and most of all the children themselves. Learning how they learnt was what gave rise to Hum Drum. In my experience as a music educator, I've seen a lot of music institutions deny education for children/adults with special needs because they didn't have anyone "qualified" for the job. The point I'm trying to make is, it doesn't take much to equip yourself to teach neurodiverse people specially when we have the internet at our fingertips. I hope this interview inspires you as much as it inspired me.
