The music club is run by the Alzheimer's Society & volunteers.
It is similar to Singing for the Brain, however, our fully trained musician, Andrew Knights, provides songs to sing along to & musical interludes on a variety of woodwind instruments. Andrew Knights has developed his own unique musical therapy that is perfect for engaging people with dementia.
A variety of purcussion instruments are provided for all to get involved with & the words to songs are printed in a format that easily readable.
The group sings along to various popular songs from throughout the ages. But it's not just about the music, it is a form of social engagement.
From working with this group, I have to say that the whole experience is so raw & genuine that there have been moments where myself & the other volunteers & family members have been moved to tears.
