Seniors Can Significantly Improve Their Lives Through Singing
It has long since been known, thanks to a study by the University of Miami School of Medicine, that seniors can significantly benefit from music therapy. The study showed that music therapy was remarkably powerful in treating conditions such as Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, as well as reduce anxiety and improve mood.
A new study by researchers at George Washington University (GWU) in Washington DC took these initial findings even further and looked at how performing music (in particular, singing regularly) could further capitalize on the already amazing benefits of general music therapy. The GWU study found that singing improved upon benefits enjoyed from music therapy, and added some additional elements, such as improved enunciation and voice projection during oral communication.
