Maria Drohan's curator insight, October 8, 2013 11:40 AM

Music has been known to reduce stress and help with anxiety however, I didnt realise to what extent it aids several mental diseases such as Parkinsins. Rythm has always played a major role when it comes to music. Parkinsons patient struggle with controlling their hand, leg movment etc... therefor working with these patients to maintain a steady rythm will eventually help them gain more control. This is a great way to incorporate music to help others!!
