Music Therapy is proven to improve the mental health of those with Parkinson’s Disease. The Parkinson’s Foundation notes, “More specifically, when people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) work with a music therapist they see improvements in movement symptoms, speech, cognitive issues and mental health. Through dance programs, choirs and drumming programs, music therapy helps people with PD maintain function, express creativity and experience a better quality of life.”
The Bluegrass Parkinson’s Alliance offers a Drum’s Alive! class, a Sentimental Journey choir, and a Harmonica Basics class. Members can participate free of charge.
