Singing With Parkinson’s
Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 1 pm to 2 pm via Google Meet, individuals at any stage of Parkinson’s can benefit from singing in the Parkinson’s group. Prior musical experience is not required but is a plus. The choir meets every Tuesday and Thursday virtually to practice a variety of therapeutically chosen choral pieces. Thanks to the Parkinson’s Foundation, this therapeutic group is free and open to anyone with a Parkinson’s diagnosis and their caretakers. Music therapy and neuroscience research has shown that music synchronizes neural activity and can improve patients’ cognitive motor, sensorimotor and speech/language symptoms. perfectharmonyhealth.com.
