The SongShape Chorus is grateful for the partnership with Dr. Tim Brimmer and Doug Everidge of SoundMinds. SoundMinds supports research and professional training programs that advance quality of life for the elderly and their caregivers. Current projects include prescribing music for rousing and calming, increasing physical, mental and social health, reducing harmful noise levels and advancing hearing recovery. Tim and Doug have been invaluable in providing guidance and support to SongShape's endeavor to provide choral singing opportunities to those dealing with dementia and their
care partners. Here's Part 1 of our conversation.
