Musical Activities

Working in close relationships with Directors of Programs, Resident Service Coordinators and Activity Directors, I also provide an on-site musical and educational one-hour concert “Traveling with Accordion around the World” to residents of:

  • Senior Centers
  • Rehabilitation Centers
  • Nursing Homes
  • Assisted Living Facilities
  • Adult Health Centers

These musical performances are entertaining and engaging, where the audience takes a musical trip around the world with a live accordion performance, while enjoying slides and videos about the history of the country, historical places in the cities, people who live there and their traditions and the origins of the music I play.

Residents can sing and dance along during these accordion performances, which also are very therapeutic and initiate physical activity and movement, provide an outlet for creative expression and motivate engagement with peers.
