What People Say

"As a teacher, my mother was as fiercely devoted to the young ones in her care as she was to her own children. With such an example, I am inspired to find ways to enrich her life. Singing with the 5th Dementia Band makes her face light up with smiles.  While I welcome any therapeutic value that music may hold, I find the greatest value is in having a place where my mother can experience joy.  I’m so thankful to have found Music Mends Minds."


—  Denise Davis, Daughter of Leola Davis
