About Us

Music is a global language

We can all engage in the conversation. 

Music lifts our spirits, awakens our soul. 

The Benefits of Music Therapy for the Elderly

The power of music can add wonderful things to people their entire lives. Research showed that in the elderly music increased mobility and coordination as well as reduced tension, diminished pain and improved recovery times. The overall improvement of physical, emotional and spiritual well being of patients is because their day is made more enjoyable with music. For some it makes them feel young again. 

Music has a resounding effect on people of all ages

It is after all the art of moving emotions and people can really connect with music they feel passionate about. It literally compels you to dance, sing, play or just enjoy. It is often said that music is medicine for the soul, but it is also a source of nostalgia and especially in senior citizen’s, 
it helps them to recover memories from their past. 
It is not just that music therapy works for the elderly, it is the profound nature of the reaction in some seniors that is the most heart warming. Many people recollect moments of their past through music. 
The most significant results were found in non-communicative patients singing along to performances and patients who don’t normally respond registering smiles on their faces. 


My name is Greg Rye, I have been playing music for over 50 years, I have seen first hand how music can change anyone’s attitude, lighten up their day and feel good again. Over the years while visiting family and friends in hospitals and facilities, music has always helped them to feel better. It has been a hope of mine to have a program of this nature to supply live entertainment to those who need it the most.
