Join us on Dementia for a FREE Interactive Lecture and Demonstration

Thursday, September 21, 2023, at 1:00 pm
Virginia S. Tillett Community Center, Manteo

Learn about the uncanny power of listening and playing music for individuals suffering from dementia and their dedicated caregivers.

Musician and author Tripp Harrison will share and demonstrate his experiences as the team leader for one of the largest music and dementia studies ever done. His interactive presentation on How to Connect with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients Using Music presents incredible techniques you can use immediately.

This lecture is powerful:  Informative, exciting, empowering and will bring hope and joy to those of us who believe we’ve had our last real connection to someone we’ve lost to these horrific conditions.  I will perform real musical examples on a keyboard to show how mood and cognitive awareness can be improved in seconds using the power of music to reach deep inside the mind.
