About Us
Music captures the very essence of human existence in its ability to imitate the body's physiological processes and preserve the stories of individuals or whole cultures. The mission of Living Melodies is to integrate music into the daily functions of life and ensure music's inclusion throughout the lifespan by using music to change these inner processes of the body and enrich even the oldest stories. We offer a variety of specialized services including entertainment by professional musicians to make occasions even more memorable; individualized music therapy services for practical non-musical goals; and education in the form of community music appreciation classes, adapted lessons for individuals with disabilities, and interactive books for both children and adults.
