Community Living Burlington endeavours to bring music into the lives of everyone we support. We want to provide the opportunity in a safe, fun and supportive environment where they can enjoy and realize the many benefits of music therapy. Together, with the support of a generous donor, we have created a larger space for people to dance, sing, make music and create moments with their friends.
Moments Through Music
Some of the benefits of music therapy include:
- Improve mood
- Improve overall well-being
- Reduced stress
- Creates happiness in everyday life
- Lessens anxiety
- Improves memory and cognition
- Provides comfort
- Eases pain
Music gives us moments when with; a song, a lyric, a word, a note or a beat, it seems a hand appears out of nowhere to take our own and lead us on a magical journey. Music touches a cord within us that resonates inside our heart, mind, and spirit. It can remind us of a pleasant memory or gives us hope, courage, happiness and joy.
An anonymous donor pledged to match every dollar donated (up to a total of $50,000) to the Moments Through Music Project. Together, we have raised $100,000 to build a bigger and better music space at our Mainway location where people can experience their own special Moments Through Music.
Make a donation and help Community Living Burlington continue to fund musical opportunities and to build an environment where the people we support can learn, create, grow and express their unique talents and gifts.
Thank you. #MomentsThroughMusic
