Educational Arts Society Provides Music to Seniors

EDUCATIONAL ARTS SOCIETY – A 501 (C) 3 PROVIDES MUSIC TO NURSING HOMES AND  SENIOR LIVING 


Duane Parham on Sax“We love him!  Bring him back to play for us!  He’s so-o-o-o nice!”  Saxophonist and CEO of Educational Arts Society Duane
Parham hears expressions like these from the many seniors and administrators of senior nursing facilities and senior-living homes that he has graced with the soulful melodies of his horn.  Not only does he “soothe their souls,” he listens to their memories, assures them the world still cares and shares his understanding of music as a universal language.  Why do they respond to this?  Because Parham believes it himself.

Discography

For many years, musicians and music therapists have recognized the impact music has on persons of all ages: babies, teens, adults and seniors.  It changes moods, increases energy and moves thinking from negative to positive.  Now, according to a recent article, the medical world has jumped on board and report that studies reveal:

” . . .that music can reduce chronic pain from diseases such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis by 21% and depression by 25%. Research in Italy reveals that listening to Celtic, classical, or Indian (raga) music for 30 minutes a day can significantly lower blood pressure. Researchers in Finland found stroke victims who listened to music for 2 hours a day showed marked improvement in memory and attention span.

Slow music, then, can produce an additional calming, immune- and mood-boosting effect by lowering cortisol levels and increasing hormones that improve the immune response and raise endorphin levels.” MedicalSupplyDepot.com. Your Comfort. Delivered.

Professor Paul Robertson, a concert violinist who did a study of the impact of music on dementia care,  recalls playing for a former church organist with advanced dementia. “She was very far gone, no language, no recognition. Someone started singing a hymn and this woman sat down at the piano, found the right key and accompanied the singer in perfect order.” 

Senior Living

Educational Arts Society investigated what people all over the world are saying about the power of music on seniors and dementia:

  • Music, especially singing, unlocks memories and kick-starts grey matter in the brain.
  • Every care facility should provide “live music” for residents and patients.
  • Musicians that interact with seniors are more stimulating health-wise than those who do not.
  • Using the same musicians in care homes build relationships.
  • Vocalists that perform on a regular basis increase the comfort level of seniors and cause them to engage in a “sing along.”
  • Music in general boosts confidence and self-esteem.
