Music can be medicine, and has proven time and again to be effective in use with people living with memory loss, depression, anxiety, and pain.
Come learn how to make a playlist that is specially tailored for an elderly loved one as well as how to compose an autobiographical playlist for yourself. We'll also have a live music activity to demonstrate how music can be used to engage the elderly.
This event is for entrepreneurs, seniors, caregivers, students, musicians, and anyone interested in bringing music to aging loved ones. Come find out how to incorporate music in both your work with seniors and in your own life in a more meaningful way.
Light refreshments will be served.

Musician and Founder
Ray Dolby Brain Health Center
Family Support Coordinator
Lior Tsarfaty is a musician and the founder of Village Song. Lior has always viewed music as more than entertainment, but also a profound source of healing. So when he left his native Israel in 2009 to study in California, it was to deepen his understanding of music as a vehicle for transformation. Over the years, Lior has used the healing power of music to make a difference for the homeless, for kids, for hospice patients, and more recently for elders. Five years ago, he began taking his music to Alzheimer’s communities in the Bay Area, and the response has been overwhelming. Village Song is the logical and spiritual culmination of all Lior’s done, as one thread has run through his vibrant life, and that is a commitment to music as a powerful instrument for change and healing.
