Music and Assisted Living

by Robert W
( Pahrump, Nevada)

So many times I read (google search) about music companies donated acoustic or other guitars to public schools or music universities for the students. An honorable thing to do. But how many times do we read about instruments donated to senior citizens centers, assisted living homes?


I do assisted living for the elderly and I can tell you first hand how these folks benefit from music. Specifically; I've sent emails to several guitar companies asking for a donation of a acoustic guitar so I can play and sing to the elderly folks. Watching them join in and sing, get up and dance, or just smile is a real joy to me. I won't go into why I can't afford and or no longer have my own guitar.

If you play an instrument, give the gift of music to your local senior center or care giver. I promise the reward will be great.
