The Power of Music and Parkinson’s Disease
Recent studies have shown that those with Parkinson’s disease who sing similar songs on a regular basis can increase the volume of their speaking voice and sharpen their articulation of spoken words. Similarly, community drumming can help people with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) regulate movement symptoms and ward off depression through creative expression.
At InMotion, we believe in the power of music and provide community singing and community drumming classes led by our board certified music therapist trained to support those living with PD every day.
“Music That Moves You”
Music That Moves You is composed of a weekly singing group and drumming group, led by a board certified music therapist. The singing group gives clients the opportunity to sing, share, and discuss their favorite songs, while also practicing techniques to improve breath support, articulation, and posture. The drumming group encourage participants to play a variety of instruments to address gross and fine motor skills, as well as challenge the brain with complex rhythms, improvisation, and divided attention.
