These performances will include various instruments such as upright bass, guitar, and brass instruments. Almost all of the songs I’ll play were written before 1965. The goal is to play songs that residents might recognize and which engage their minds and trigger good memories.
Even with the best music performances, it is sometimes challenging to keep an audience engaged for a whole show. I’ve found that adding some magic tricks really gets the audience’s attention and keeps them interested for a longer period of time.
Group Participation Using Handbells:
In the last section of our time together, we’ll hand out color coded handbells to your residents. The method used is very simple and your seniors will instantly become part of the show. They’ll get to play along on a few songs before being dismissed, and this could end up being the highlight of their day!
