Connecting Generations Through Music...
A unique platform to inspire the younger generation to build musical excellence, volunteerism, and leadership and connect with the older generation through music
Senior Living Facilities
On a beautiful summer evening, two young children played their musical instruments to an elderly, terminally ill patient. Just hours later, the patient passed away. Deeply moved by this life-changing experience, each next similar visit, these children learned more about the importance of music and significance of life.
We Play Music 4 You is founded by these two children with the intention of sharing the joy of playing music and singing with children worldwide to foster awareness, acceptance and respect for older generations and the end of life. Our innovative digital platform and highly customized volunteering program allows our ever-expanding network of passionate and enthusiastic young student musicians to actively volunteer at organizations responsible for caring for elderly and sick in the community.

Music and children are most cherished among the elderly population around the world and guaranteed to enhance quality of life of the elderly especially benefiting those at the various stages of Dementia and Alzheimer.
Annually, in the United States alone, 5 percent of the population (~15 million) over age 65 receives long-term care at a variety of settings; such as Adult Day Care, Home Care, Assisted Living, Independent Living, Personal Care, Skilled Care, Nursing Homes, Hospice Care, and the number of people receiving such care is projected to be 27 million by 2050!

Through this ground-breaking program. It benefits all who are involved
Cody Conley is living proof of the power of music and youth that positively affects generations. He has been playing in our church services for a number of years and brings tears to my eyes with the emotion and professionalism he produces. I’m so proud that he is able to share his talent with so many others through this ground-breaking program. It benefits all who are involved.
They have pleaded with me to have them return.
Our residents enjoyed the music and interaction with the students when they visited our community! They have pleaded with me to have them return. So PLEASE DO!
Thank you for all that you do!!
This past Friday, Tejal who just so happens to be one of my music therapy volunteers, Brady and Cody performed in conjunction with AseraCare Hospice at Sunrise of McCandless for their residents. They are all extremely talented young individuals and also very mature for their age. Both the staff and residents very much enjoyed their music. It was a lovely afternoon and I was very grateful that they could perform. Thank you for all that you do!!
Music does work miracles!
Having worked in the Long Term Care Industry for over 25 years, I think I have seen it all but music, children and puppies are guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face no matter what their age. I have seen debilitated elderly and residents with dementia react to music. They will mouth the words, move to the beat or keep awake for the entire performance. Music does work miracles!
The We Play Music 4 You group has been to Holy Family Manor and the results were memorable. Residents were smiling, moving to the music and just plain in awe of the talent that these young children possess. Many voiced memories of their musical talents and experiences of the past. In turn, the children responded to the residents many questions and platitudes with dignity and respect.
Having children share their musical talents with the elderly benefits both sides of the spectrum. I would recommend anyone who works with the elderly to experience We Play Music 4 You. Not only will your clients/residents benefit from this experience, everyone will!
