Know What Music-Making Can Do For You?
A recent study indicates that music-making can make the active older adult healthier!
Studies have shown:
- A decrease in anxiety was evident after only 10 weeks
- A brighter mood and decreased depression was found.
- Loneliness decreased in the adults who took group music classes.
- There was a 92% increase in the growth hormone HGH. (This human growth hormone has been called the “feel good” hormone. It influences your energy level, muscle mass, bone density, aches and pains and even wrinkles!)
Dr. Frederick Tims, Ph.D., Chair of Music Therapy at Michigan State University, said: “We feel very strongly that the work we are doing suggests that abundant health benefits can be achieved by older people learning to play music in a supportive, socially enjoyable setting.”
Not surprisingly, there is mounting medical evidence to support the connection between music and wellness in older people. Thousands of music therapists now work in psychiatric facilities, hospitals, hospice programs and senior centers.
The movement got a boost from a recent study done jointly by the University of Miami and four other schools. Researchers found that 130 older folks who took organ classes showed decreased levels of anxiety and depression – and may have bolstered their immune systems by making music.
