Memory Tune-ing Vintage Music Therapy for memory challenged Groups and Individuals

Our Memory Tune-ing Mission is to maintain/improve cognition-memory via guided listening, reminiscing and dancing to the songs of the participants’ teenage years.

What Is “Vintage” Music”? Your vintage music is the actual songs you listened to from age 13-19 on record or on the radio or at dances. Some people call them “Golden Oldies”. What an “oldie” or vintage music is depends on the individual.

Group Memory Tune-ing Therapy

Currently groups of 16-50 in residential care memory units or adult day care receive two one-hour listening, reminiscing and dancing sessions per week. The therapy is described in Group Memory Tune-ing Vintage Music Therapy

  • After over 40 months of testing on 50 persons, most with impaired memory from Dementia – Alzheimers, Parkinsons, PTSD, Stroke… Every person in the group Memory Tune-ing sessions either maintained or improved their standardized cognitive test scores.
