Singing for the Brain

 

Singing for the brain.

‘Singing for the Brain’ is a service provided by Alzheimer’s Society which uses singing to bring people together in a friendly and stimulating social environment.

Singing is not only an enjoyable activity, it can also provide a way for people with dementia, along with their carers, to express themselves and socialise with others in a fun and supportive group.

Hidden in the fun are activities which build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in the brain. Even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

Singing for the Brain was recently featured in a BBC Radio 4 documentary looking into the emotional significance of Handel’s Hallelujah Chrous.

Here is a short video about Singing for the Brain
