Social Engagement: Singing with Parkinson's - Part 2
Join our 2021 Community Grantee, Perfect Harmony Health, for a fun, collaborative program called Singing with Parkinson's!
Research in both music therapy and neuroscience has shown that singing can improve Parkinson's symptoms. Neurologic Music Therapists design our Parkinson's Choir to address limitations and struggles that occur with PD. It’s reported that participation in singing activities and music with a strong rhythm, has improved their gait, breath support, mood, motor control, and ability to perform consecutive tasks. Individuals at any stage of the disease are welcome and can benefit. Prior musical experience is not required but is a plus!

Due to the nature of our social engagement programs and to protect the privacy of participants, we will not be recording or archiving these programs. By not recording, it's our hope that the program provides a comfortable environment that encourages meaningful participation.
This is a virtual program, taking place live, using the online Zoom platform. Instructions on joining the webinar are provided after registering.
