Musical Biographies™ is a program that uses music and art
to bring memories to life!
In partnership with the UCSD Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, Villa Musica presents Musical Biographies™. This program is designed to bring together people with all forms of dementia, their care-givers, and family in a unique multi-sensorial experience that centers around music and memory. Musical Biographies™ is a 6-week workshop that provides small groups of individuals the opportunity to create memory books inspired by a musical playlist. Participants work with Villa Musica and UCSD staff, care givers, and extended family members to identify music that inspires memory: memory of an important occasion, an event, an era, and then design and decorate a personal biography that brings their musical choices to life.
