Musical Visits is a service that can help to meet the recreational, creative and spiritual needs of assisted living, long term care and retirement community residents by bringing lovely harp music to their sides. My repertoire includes tradtional music, classical music, hymns, holiday music and contemporary songs. Live harp music can contribute to overall care by promoting relaxation and stimulating feelings of well being. I have been presenting harp music programs for numerous senior care facilities in New Jersey over the past several years, including being the resident harpist for the Christian Health Care Center in Wyckoff and the Oakland Care Center.

New!Nature's Harp- a unique program designed for memory care residents that combines two non-pharmacologic interventions that can promote a reduction in anxiety, agitation and stress. I will visit your facility with a DVD of beautiful nature sounds and vistas and play soothing harp music while the images are displayed on a TV or monitor. Staff along with visiting family and friends love this peaceful program too!
