Tuesday: “Lip Sync” the words (make no sound) instead of singing out loud.


Wednesday: Close your eyes and imagine you are at an outdoor concert.


Thursday: Tap along to the beat of the music with your hands for the Nostalgia Song and with your feet for the Neuron Song.


Friday: Hum along with the music instead of singing the words.


Saturday: Listen to or sing all the Nostalgia Songs from the prior week.


Sunday: Listen to or sing all the Neurons Songs from the prior week.


When you have extra time: Listen to or sing Nostalgia and Neuron Songs of your choice.

  • Listen to either the suggested songs or songs that are familiar to the participant and sing along with as many times as you like.

 

  • What were you doing in life when this song was popular?

Neuron Song Exercise 

  • Listen to either the suggested songs or songs that are unfamiliar to the participant a few times in a row and focus on the melody.

  • It does not matter if you sing the lyrics correctly or not.

 

  • Repeat the process as many times as time and preference allows.

 

  • Try to reproduce any part of the song without listening to it? (lyrics, beat, etc)

 

  • What instruments do you hear?

 

  • Is this a song you can dance to?

 

  • What do you like about the selection?

 

  • Does the song make you think of anything in particular?
