Music has been a part of human life since the very beginning. We have beautiful hymns, chants, and classical masterpieces created over the course of human history. It is a connection to all life – from the rhythmic sounds of nature to our mother’s heartbeat. It’s playing in the background as we shop, it’s available in our cars, on our phones and used to advertise a variety of products and services. We select our favorite songs to play at our weddings and funerals. It can take us back to a time when we were happiest; to a time before an illness.

When you are ill or a loved one is living with a chronic condition, you lose the ability to control all the circumstances. Fear, anxiety and unknown variables diminish the ability to function as you once did when the illness or condition was absent. We are constantly hearing sounds around us. Why not make sounds that bring peace and happiness to someone in pain or living with dementia or Alzheimer’s?
