These fun Boomwhackers are musical tubes - each has a different colour and tone. Play by knocking onto your hand, body, table, floor or anywhere you like! A fun way to make music - try to play a recognised tune if you can e.g Happy Birthday or Jingle Bells. Made from hard wearing plastic, these will provide musical laughs for anyone. Ideal for music therapy sessions for older people in care homes and particularly good for anyone with a dementia.
This fun Hand Bell Instrument can be played with the fingers or the whole hand which makes it ideal for anyone seated. Each of the 8 tones is a different colour to make it easy to identify. With 8 song examples to follow, this instrument makes a fun musical activity for care home residents and enables anyone with a disability to make music. Musical activities appeal to people of all ages and abilities and are a good way to encourage anyone with a dementia to join in the fun. Why not mount it lower down on a wall to enable wheelchair users to enjoy it too?

Drawing on the diverse research and considerable personal experience of contributors from around the world, Music Therapy in Dementia Care takes a comprehensive look at music therapy as a means of improving memory, health and identity in those suffering from dementia - particularly the Alzheimer's type. It explores the issues which may arise in working with this group, such as coping with wartime memories, and shows how music therapy facilitates and enables communication through sound and movement.
