Advanced Harmonica Class:
This harmonica group for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners engages people in harmonica playing to increase lung capacity and breath control, build self-esteem, and encourage socialization. The harmonica is a fun and accessible instrument to play, and in this 8-week course, participants learn breathing exercises, harmonica warm-ups, and a harmonica repertoire.
Music therapy, an engaging, interactive, goal-focused and fun therapy, has been shown to be an effective tool in improving cognitive, speech, motor, and social skills as well as increasing quality of life for People with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners. At MusicWorx, we offer several music therapy programs for People with Parkinson’s and their Care Partners to meet varying needs and abilities. On top of the many group programs that MusicWorx offers, there are also opportunities to take private harmonica, piano, vocal, guitar, and ukulele lessons that are adapted based on individual learning style, ability, and need.
