The Light of Music

Seeing how our Music for the Memory members react to the songs during a singing session is both heartwarming and fascinating.  Feelings from the past are often triggered for them and they are more able to express their emotions through singing these familiar songs than at any other time.  Singing and music and sometimes even dancing to the songs, can create calm, reduce stress and help them connect with others.  It’s a truly beautiful thing to be part of.
