Singing for the Brain sessions in Tisbury

SINGING for the Brain sessions run by Alzheimer’s Society are coming to Tisbury in the new year.

The sessions use singing as a way for people with dementia and their carers to express themselves in a cheerful and supportive group.

They also involve activities that build on the well-known preserved memory for song and music in the brain, because even when many memories are hard to retrieve, music is especially easy to recall.

Singing for the Brain was recently featured in a BBC Radio 4 documentary looking into the emotional significance of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus. Participants are able to join in as much as they wish, with lyrics and percussion instruments made available.
