“Music is soothing,” Community Connections case manager Nancy MacMillan said. “And they need that.”

This is from an article about music being used in therapy, for some disabled patients.

Music therapy is getting more and more popular, and for good reason: it can really reach us in ways indescribable! They say that Alzheimer’s patients can remember old songs they sang even when they can’t remember their spouse or children. Music can reach those who seem unreachable in other ways. In the case of the the article, the music is being played to developmentally disabled adults.

So did you guess which composer the therapist chose for the day?

Heh … I’m going to bet not many of you would have suggested Stravinsky, aside from seeing the video below so of course I gave you a huge clue. But there you have it. (And yes, he didn’t only compose Rite of Spring.)
