A Musical Encounter - Solo Viola

A Musical Encounter - Solo Viola

  • 5 Stars.

A typical performance consists of light classical pieces and popular music intertwined with anecdotal stories about the music. The positive benefits of live music for older people have been well documented. In elderly people music has been shown to not only to reduce tension and anxiety but also helps reduce the feeling of isolation and solitude. A surprising revelation in music therapy research has shown that live music increased production of the human growth hormone that has a positive effect on the side effects of aging, like wrinkling, osteoporosis, and general aches and pains.  Also within the music therapy literature there is a wealth of clinical case study material that demonstrates the impact of music as a medium that can still be recognized and enjoyed by elderly people with moderate-severe dementia. Sample Programme (around 40 minutes)Introductions about Bach and Traditional Pieces, including history and anecdotes, movements could be played separately with some additional information about each in between. JS Bach (Cello) Suite No 1 in G Major Prelude, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Menuetto, Gigue Traditional    Various Welsh Melodies arranged for Viola Ash Grove, Calon Lân, All Through the Night, Men of Harlech Benjamin Britten, Elegy for Viola Solo, Over the Rainbow, Wonderful World, and other popular tunes. After the performance it is nice to sit and have a chat with the residents, if they are able and willing. I also would be able to answer any questions that might arise.
