Community Singalongs

Our dementia-friendly singalongs are carefully crafted to connect people with memories and emotions.

We start by selecting positive, uplifting, and familiar songs. Then we create recordings, usually featuring piano and a strong melody line. Most of our songs are recorded in lower keys than originals, making them easier for older ears to hear and older voices to sing. Then we add an engaging singalong leader, easy-to-read lyrics, and strong visual clues.

We have presented more than 400 in-person singalong shows at assisted living and memory care facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Now, thanks to a grant from the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA), we are extending our programming to include community singalong events. We launched monthly events on September 21, 2022, which was World Alzheimer’s Day.
