The residents joined in on a zoom session with Together with Music. Mary had everyone singing and dancing within minutes. Together we sang, ‘oh when the saints go marching in’ and then danced with our jazz hands to Mary’s wonderful Jazz music. Mary told us about a famous American pianist Erroll Garner, he began playing the piano at 3 years of age and played professionally at 7 years of age. Erroll Garner taught himself to play the piano. Erroll wrote a song called ‘Misty’ which Mary then played beautifully for us. Mary asked everyone to listen carefully to the song and have a think, ‘What does the song make you think of?’ Robina said it reminded her of the rain and thunderstorms. Karen said it reminded her of the clouds and sun. We finished off the session with a sing along. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session and looks forward to future music sessions with Mary.
See pictures below of our singing and dancing.
