Music Therapy Seniors/Dif-abled

$1,260 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 39 people in 47 months

                           
Joy of music for seniors and the dif-abled. Following my bliss.
I am a very low-income senior musician (guitar player and singer) who is currently performing to enrich the lives of senior citizens    and developmentally/physically different people of all ages in their respective facilities. 
You can help continue to spread the happiness that live music brings to these people by helping me fund this work.  Please help me to continue to follow my dream of bringing live musical participation to people who need and appreciate the joys of music. 
Thank you.

Hi folks,
Sat., March 11th, 2017 I performed for the residents of a local senior housing group. They danced and sang to the lively tunes; the sandwiches, desert and coffee were greatly appreciated. Thank you for your contributions as these allow me to continue.
Peace.

Hello,
On Monday,March 6th, 2017 I played and sang to the residents of the Willow Point Nursing home. Some of the people sang along and requested tunes they knew. All had a wonderful time. Thank you for your donation since it allows me to continue this service.
Namaste BaBooji!

From the back cover of Oliver Sacks' book "Musicophilia", "Dr Sacks describes how music can animate people with Parkinson's disease who cannot otherwise move, give words to stroke patients who cannot otherwise speak, and calm and organize people who are deeply disoriented by Alzheimer's or schizophrenia. Music can be inspiring moving us to the heights and depths of emotion-and it can be our best medicine." Your donations help me to continue providing live music to senior citizens and the dif-abled people (differently abled). Thank you for your contributions and support. Michael
