talking to one another
Your music group always gets people talking to one another and interacting – thank you!
Assisted Living Facility, Vancouver, WA
After one hour of live, interactive music, our elderly residents are happier, calmer and also more social. They cannot wait until Tuesday when our music therapist comes. Even if they are not in a good mood, they do not want to skip music therapy!
Owner, Ankeny Circle Adult Family Home, Portland OR
Music Therapy has been a very uplifting experience for our residents and families. Their laughing, bantering and voices echoing through our home has been priceless. You all do a beautiful job!

forget about any pain or depression
When my residents know that is Music Therapy day, they get very excited! When they hear the music, they sing and forget about any pain or depression...you can see big smiles on their faces that stay with them for the next couple of days.

light up, stress relief, brain stimulation, exercise and social interaction
Our residents light up during Music Therapy. We witness all the benefits from stress relief and brain stimulation to exercise and social interaction. Music Therapy enhances residents’ lives and we wouldn’t operate without it.
