Intention

Neurologist Oliver Sacks concludes Musicophilia by stating that “music is a necessity for those with dementia” and while Sacks had tested the familiar music route, he theorises that “music does not have to be familiar to exert its emotional pull.”

Beatie Wolfe's intention with Power of Music & Dementia is to show how novel music can have transformative effects too.  

Beatie Wolfe’s overarching intention for this project is to the furthering of research in this area, to the humanisation of care and to the wider application of music programmes within home, care homes and care facilities.
