Drumming Study Video #2

This is an example from a drumming video I made for a pilot study for people with Parkinson’s disease, working on motor skills and quality of life. Participants reported enjoying the video and one liked doing it with her eyes closed as a way to relax after a long day. I keep this video up on this site as a reminder that there is great potential to use  music to help people with Parkinson’s (as well as other diagnoses) retain and even improve motor skills and quality of life. We are just beginning to explore the power of music, applied in a very specific way, to help with rehabilitation.

You are more than welcome to view and try it out if you are so inclined. Feel free to ask questions through the “Contact Me” option at the top of the screen.
