When you enter a house you can hear people singing, you can hear the rhythm of footsteps, the melody of conversations. Music belongs to everyday life.
The musical memory remains unimpaired longer as the ‘common’ knowledge memory. This offers possibilities.
Where language fades, music speaks.
Therefore music carries memories and connects people. Significant moments arise from, through, with and in the music: it invites people to sing together, to listen, to dance, to share.
During individual music therapy sessions music can offer support and holding. Together and through the use of music communication is built. The inner world is explored and resounded. The mourning process can be held, shared and processed on a non- verbal level.
