Music Facilitation and Consultation

  

In more than a decade of experience working with clients with a variety of issues including schizophrenia, developmental disabilities, Alzheimer's disease and dementia, I’ve seen music reach individuals who respond to almost nothing else. I work with clients, their caregivers and families to offer best-loved music both by playing and singing in one-to-one sessions as well as using technology to provide personalized playlist of favorite music that can be enjoyed anytime to amplify joy, reduce stress, and enhance quality of life. 


In addition to individual music sessions with clients, I also provide consultation and instruction on technological solutions and teach clients, caregivers, and family members to use technology to provide a client’s favorite music anytime. Services include:

  • Facilitating enjoyment and creative expression through music appreciation and participation
  • Assisting clients, caregivers, and family members to make personalized playlists of favorite music
  • Playing musical instruments (acoustic, electric, and electronic), writing songs, and producing audio recordings using a variety of instruments, tools, and software 
  • Engaging with clients of all ages and physical, mental and emotional issues including Alzheimer’s, dementia, schizophrenia, and mental and/or physical challenges
  • Teaching instrumental skills and encourage participation 

I love this work and believe absolutely in the power of music to improve life for all. I look forward to working with you!

Over the past 13 years working in centers for rehabilitation and skilled nursing, assisted living communities, and memory care neighborhoods, I frequently have called upon Alex Sniderman to lead music groups, provide entertainment, offer appropriate interventions for troubled or confused residents, and share his knowledge and skills with staff, interns and students.  Alex truly knows how to reach people with his music.  His repertoire spans the musical tastes of multiple generations, countries, and cultures. I highly recommend his work.

Alex Sniderman worked with me for several years as a Music and Recreation Specialist with our Rainbow Program focusing on residents with Alzheimer’s and dementia as well as facilitating a variety of activities with  higher functioning residents. He has a natural talent for interacting with elderly patients and special kids. Through his music, he is able to communicate with them on another level, soothing their spirits and allowing them to zone to their place and time through their favorite songs. He is a wonderful facilitator when working one-to-one with clients. I take great pleasure in recommending his services.
