The Young Adult Program (YAP) at the Kalamazoo Regional Educational Service Agency, is a post-secondary program that provides a range of transition services to young people with disabilities, ages 18–26.

The Gilmore Piano Lab for the Young Adult Program is taught by a board-certified music therapist who is highly skilled in using music to help individuals address physical, emotional, cognitive, or social needs. The Piano Lab at YAP uses songwriting, small group piano lessons, and drum circle exercises to help develop goal setting, communication, and other adult living skills for these young adults.
