Media Reviews Music Therapy

Music therapy and Alzheimer’s disease

How does music therapy help in developing connections for patients with Alzheimer’s disease? Here’s a nice quick piece in the Huffington Post with video of sessions happening.  Interviewed is Connie Tomaino, an expert in our field, sharing a bit about why music is effective with her patients.

Whenever I witness these kinds of responses to music is sessions, and even on these videos, I tend to take for granted how transforming the music can be for an individual.  I often think, “Of course he is up and dancing!  She’s playing his song!”, and then I remember what a huge deal this is. 

Find the music for your loved ones, and dance, clap, or sing!
