MUSIC HOUR for people with Learning Difficulties and/or suffering with DEMENTIA.
It has been proven Music has an enormous impact on the lives and wellbeing of Dementia sufferers including those with Learning Disabilities. Music really is the soundtrack of our lives and one song can take anyone back to a moment in time but just listening is not enough. There must be INTERACTION and that can only happen if the host has professional stage and performance experience and an ability motivate the audience. For that reason we only use Professional Musicians to host our MUSIC HOUR. It’s also essential to make regular visits to the same homes, so the musicians can build a relationship with the residents and get to know their names so they feel totally at ease and comfortable enough to let themselves go.
Here are just some of the ‘ingredients’ that make MUSIC HOUR:
*Available for groups of any size and mixed ages
*Live performance by a Professional Musician
*Percussion instruments provided for group
*Encouraged to play instruments along with track
*Perform Rhythms as a group
*Name That Tune
*Music from 1940s – Today!

DEMENTIA is the loss of cognitive functioning. MUSIC HOUR encourages cognitive function. It can only help.
Almost 1 Million people in the UK suffer with Dementia and sadly there is no cure so there is a real need now for non-pharmaceutical solutions. Anything that can delay and reduce the impact has to be worth while and music has been shown to have a dramatic effect. Equally as important is simply having FUN and that is a need for every mind, of which there are over 7 Billion. If we keep minds active and healthy, the hope is we can reduce the chances of developing this terrible condition.
