Music Therapy For Memory Issues


We saw lots of toe tapping and clapping during our show this morning, and that means that our music was triggering a positive response in our audience. So many studies have proven the benefits of music therapy for those that suffer from Alzheimer's and other forms of Dementia. For all of us, certain musical pieces are connected to special sensory experiences from our younger days. For people with memory related decline, while they may lose many of their memories, those experiences are still there, and are triggered when they hear the music connected to them. This brings a positive response and happiness. We also learned that music from the time they were 7 or so years old, until their mid-20's hold the most benefit. An example is someone with memory issues who will not remember much, but when they hear their wedding song, they are immediately triggered in a positive manner. We find this fascinating, and it's why we try to choose songs that were popular in the 1950's - 1970's. Here's a clip of us singing one such hit from this morning's show!
