Sharing Live Music, Lighting up Lives!

Music for Seniors connects area musicians with older adults through live and interactive music programs designed to engage, entertain and educate seniors – promoting health and wellbeing, reducing isolation and enriching the lives of all participants.

At Music for Seniors, we believe in the profound impact that live music programming can have on the lives of older adults. Beyond the joy of listening to melodies that resonate with their hearts, our live music programs serve as a powerful tool for reducing isolation and nurturing social cohesion within senior communities.

Help us bring more live music programs to older adults in Tennessee!

Frank Dycus Legacy
FREE Daytime Concert Series

Our Concerts feature talented bands and soloists at various accessible venues throughout the area. Concerts are scheduled during daytime hours on weekdays to allow everyone the opportunity to attend: independent older adults; groups from senior centers and senior communities; and groups with special needs transported by care-giving staff are all welcomed and celebrated.”

Live Performance Learning Labs

Learning Labs are multi-session, hands-on group instruction programs led by qualified teaching artists to help older adults learn to play an instrument, participate in a choral group or learn the creative process of songwriting. These are one-hour daytime classes usually scheduled in a 6-week series with instruments provided, if needed.
