Music Programs For Seniors

Music is therapeutic for seniors and can improve both health and well-being. Our Singing with Seniors music program is an on-location service offered to retirement residences in the Barrie area.

Independent seniors may choose private lessons at Patience Piano’s studio. For those who play recorder, flute, or another appropriate instrument, the Huronia Recorder Consort is also something to consider.

We offer many ways seniors can be engaged in the love of music.

Retirement Residence Music

In our Singing with Seniors program we provide easy-to-follow lyrics in a variety of year-round themes (Fabulous Forties, Remembering the Fifties, Inspirational Collection, etc.). We also offer seasonal themes for St. Patrick’s Day, Canada Day, Remembrance Day, Christmas, and others. Those not wanting to sing are welcome to enjoy just listening. Piano dining room music is another retirement residence option. Engage your residents in the love of music.

Studies have shown that music promotes better health through the enjoyment of listening, dancing and singing. Music also triggers long forgotten memories and enables residents to engage and reach a higher level of functioning.

Huronia Recorder Concort

Since 2002 Lynn has been directing and participating in an amateur adult recorder ensemble. The group not only plays a variety of recorders (sopranino to bass), but other instruments that complement their sound: strings, flute, harmonica, percussion, etc. Their long-time accompanist and arranger, Henry Martinen is no longer able to participate, but there’s lots of his music yet to be played, as well as published music by others.

They meet regularly, rehearse a variety of music (classical and contemporary) and have some laughs. On occasion, they play at local schools, retirement homes, or anywhere else they’re given the opportunity.

If you play the recorder or another instrument that you think would suit the group, please contact them. There’s no charge for participating. Private recorder lessons are available for those who’d like to learn.

“As a retirement gift my husband purchased lessons with Lynn at Patience Piano . I had always had a love of piano and wanted to learn how to play. Lynn provides a full education in music not just piano lessons. She is warm and nurturing and finds the good in everything I do, which is encouraging for me as an adult who has never played an instrument before.

My advice to any adult wanting to learn music is to just do it for yourself. It’s a great activity to keep you sharp and is a truly rewarding experience.”

Senior Lessons

Independent seniors may choose private lessons at Patience Piano’s studio. Patience Piano provides quality musical instruction to beginners and those wanting to refresh skills they had earlier in their lives. Our convenient lesson times accommodate even the busiest schedules.

We offer RCM exam preparation for those wanting to commit to it, but will also assist students in achieving whatever other goals they have, at their own pace.
