My job is to bring the music, bring the joy.

My grandma passed away when she was 74 years old after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. After what she, my grandpa and my family experienced with this disease, I began seeking out families who were going through the same thing. To use music to spread joy to those experiencing this disease. Music and playing an instrument is one of the few activities that uses both sides of the brain at the same time. Building myelin, creating brain cells - these things can slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. 

While the science says it, at the forefront for me is the emotional impact. Music creates story, connection, a path into the present moment and away from the isolating confusion that manifests in those at any stage of the disease. For the family to see their loved one in joy is a healing ripple.

I have done piano lessons, played piano, accompanied my students while they sing. I have helped a dementia student recover use of a hand after a stroke. Really, anything goes that creates a bridge to the healing salve of music. Being this vehicle is a privilege. My job is to bring the music, bring the joy.

COVID-19 Update - all Heal sessions will be done virtually until it is safe for both parties to meet in person. I have had powerful zoom Heal sessions the past 8 weeks and would love to share it with you!
