How Music Helped Find My Father
Erica Parker, creator of Signature Symphony’s Helpful Harmonies for Wellness program, a music program that works with Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s patients, tells her story about losing her father to dementia and discovering how her music could find him again. Through her personal experiences with her father as well as research, she created this program to help other musicians connect with seniors living with these maladies. Musicians know that music can reach deep inside each of us. When other communication fails, and it often does, music can find us hidden inside.
