Our History

Carol and Irwin Rosenstein, co-founders of Music Mends Minds, stumbled onto the effects of music therapy as a treatment option for ongoing symptoms of Parkinson's 

After Irwin began playing piano for participating students and adults, he became increasingly energetic, talkative, and hopeful.

His dramatic transformation and through music and social support inspired Carol to share the rhythmic remedy with others who are suffering. Thus, the 5th Dementia intergenerational therapeutic music band was launched.




These were the original members of "The 5th Dementia" and the inception of Music Mends Minds. All four members found a place for them to reconnect with themselves and their loved ones. Carol and Irwin wanted to share this magic with families suffering with similar fates.
