Did you know that singing can improve your brain function? It’s true!
In a recent article in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, researchers gave people with mild to moderate dementia 10 weeks of singing lessons from a professional voice coach. The patients showed improvements in memory, thinking skills, mood, and the ability to find their way around!
According to the study, whether a person had sung or played a musical instrument earlier in life did not influence the benefits of the music therapy.
Imagine that! All that singing in the shower turns out to have been a good thing!
