In the latest of series, we feature mUsic Unites, based at Hebrew SeniorLife’s Jack Satter House in Revere, MA.
(Check our archives for parts 1-30.)
mUsic Unites is a intergenerational music program that operates from the premise that music can be a common denominator that unites us all, no matter our ages or backgrounds.
Each week, local high school students teach older adults how to play musical instruments (voice, piano, guitar, and drums).
Program participants are developing meaningful relationships with music as the medium; the high school students have become teachers and the older adults are realizing that there is no such thing as being "too old" when it comes to learning something new and achieving one's goals.
