Singing with Parkinson's

Parkinson's Choir Flyer-2.jpg

Atlanta's FIRST Parkinson's Choir!

The Alchemy Sky Foundation and The George Center are pleased to announce the development of a therapeutic choral program to help older adults living with Parkinson’s Disease improve their quality of life. Check out our PRESS RELEASE HERE!

Research in both music therapy and neuroscience has shown that music synchronizes neural activity, and can improve patients cognitive motor, sensorimotor, and speech/language symptoms.

Patients report that participation in singing activities and music with a strong rhythm has improved their gait, breath support, mood, motor control, and ability to perform consecutive tasks.

Questions? Call 678-701-1203 OR Email Claire@TheGeorgeCenter.com

Join us as we explore the benefits of therapeutic singing within the Atlanta Parkinson's Community!
