Mezzo Muzique = Music for Seniors.
Mezzo Muzique provides healing music for seniors. For people working at health care corporations, hiring quality entertainers costs money and time. 2017 spells budget cuts for activity directors.
My solution is to create an online, downloadable, database of my own recordings of oldies in customized, half hour interactive sessions, for Seniors to be engaged in as music therapy. It is is free to access.
How is Mezzo Muzique's online interactive music therapy sessions for Seniors different from downloading sing songs from YouTube or playing the CD player?
I am offering interactive, custom made, healing, music sessions, in half hour segments. It is not continuous, monotonous music. Each session gets Seniors engaged. I speak to them directly in every music session. I jog their memory by asking "which movie did our next song come from". I also provide the lyrics to the songs. Each sessions makes Seniors feel special, and not like a number or statistic.
Music does amazing things to improve the lives of older people. It improves hand and feet movement, creates laughter, reduces cognitive impairment, and improves the brain. I, Preethi Fernando, founder of Mezzo Muzique have been providing music for Seniors at retirement communities, assisted living, and memory care places for Alzheimers. my music touches only about 100 communities. I want to expand.
Activity directors can now download songs and include a music event for the residents, every day of the month, free of charge. Homebound Seniors can participate in interactive music therapy in the comfort of their armchairs. Here is my version of You are my Sunshine.
Risks and challenges
The challenge is to create a simple tool that activity directors can access and that will reach the ears of Seniors.
