I am so excited to go back to Valley View nursing home with my music students and their families this fall! It is such a treat for the residents there to see and hear young people playing and singing. This is a great experience to share with your kids- several families traveled an hour each way last year to join in this opportunity to serve and I heard such great feedback from employees and residents…it was a true encouragement. I hope each family can plan toward coming at least once during October or November on a first or third Saturday between 1-3 p.m.
Students can play or sing one song or more if they are up to it! I also love it when students come just to watch and meet the residents. A performance-shy student will warm up to playing for others with less pressure surrounding the situation! This is great performance practice!
