Thread Name: Getting nursing home gigs
Subject: RE: Getting nursing home gigs
I just found these great posts and am thrilled to find out there are so many musicians out there actually getting *paid* to sing at nursing homes. I LOVE to sing with elders and do so on a volunteer basis 2x or more per month. I always figured if I could get paid to do what I love I would be so grateful. My question is about 'music therapy.' (forgive me if this is another post somewhere) I wonder who out there is doing music therapy and what exactly does that look like? My vision is to do 20 to 30 minutes with someone one on one just singing to and with them some beautiful music. What would one sing for music therapy? What would one charge? If there is someone doing this please feel free to answer here or email direct at drrcc@aol.com.

Thanks so much!
Dana
