Keeping Your Brain Young with Music

This past week-end I went to a delightful Christmas Program at my mother's assisted living community in Spartanburg, S.C. It was a double celebration because not only was it a Christmas dinner for all residents and their families but it was also my mother's 82nd birthday! In preparation for this, my mother organized a little chorus of her peers and friends there and they sang familiar carols and Christmas songs. To my amazement, my mother conducted the chorus, even though she is legally blind from macular degeneration!
I have no doubt that those who participate in music-making activites keep their brains active and young and the research in this field backs that belief up! Soooo, keep singing and playing all the music you love! Happy Holidays!
