The Healing Power of Music
Using popular songs, music therapists help us to sing along following words posted on an easel using instruments that set the beat for each song. The music stimulates parts of the brain, which helps us to recall lyrics and tunes of songs with which we are very familiar. In this therapeutic technique, we challenge our brains, helping to build and maintain neural pathways. Shown here is Joel, one of those who has helped us in our singing.
