Around the country in independent/assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and senior day programs, elders are bonding with babies and toddlers through music-making.  The combination of music and children is just magical for elder participants.  Some grandfriends actively absorb the experience, clearly delighting in watching and listening; others love singing along, tapping their feet and shaking the instruments along with the families. And although most elders sing and dance from their chairs, some are even able to get up and boogie with us! The children and parents love it, too.  There is an instant connection between elders and families that is incredible to witness. Music Together directors like myself are so proud to be bringing people together across generations in our communities. We are bringing back something essential that’s been lost: intergenerational music-making.”
