Storyboard Text

  • Hi Ana! How did your doctor's appointment go the other day?
  • Not too well. It turns out the tremors I've been experiencing are early signs of Parkinson's disease. 
  • It's a neurodegenerative disorder that affects muscle movement. 
  • I'm not quite sure yet. I have another appointment later today to discuss what can be done.
  • Oh no! Can it be treated?
  • Later That Day. . .
  • Unfortunately, treatment for Parkinson's disease only treat symptoms. Conventional options include different medications and surgeries.
  • What about my quality of life from here on out?
  • There are many alternative treatment options in addition to conventional methods. Current research is looking into the benefits of trained professionals administering musical interventions to patients with movement disorders.
  • What kinds of benefits could making music have for patients with Parkinson's disease?
  •  Music therapy offers a sense of community and motivation, and can enhance upper motor dexterity in a noninvasive way. It can considerably improve overall quality of life.
  • Wow, that sounds great. Maybe I'll give it a try!
  • 2 Weeks Later. . .
  • Hello class! I will be the instructor for your first session!
