Music and Members: Sounds Like Fun and So Much More


Anecdotally we’ve seen how music can perk up a member or even calm another. While each member may respond differently, more often than not, music has a positive effect on individuals. Music seems to stimulate movement, tapping of the foot, hand clapping, bouncing of the head to the beat of the music. On occasion, music can spark singing, dancing, and laughter.


According to this article, a study indicates that music we have a connection to, lives in a part of the brain that does not get affected by Alzheimer’s. It’s no wonder music can have such a profound positive impact with members.
