Inspiring people to practice kindness and pass it on to others
Learn about our new pilot program to effectively teach kindness in schools.LEARN MORE
Schools and churches commonly visit nursing homes during the holiday season to sing carols, but during the rest of the year, nursing homes often don’t have a lot of visitors.
You can help solve this issue by arranging to play an instrument or sing at your local nursing home. You don't have to be an expert for them to appreciate your music. Playing music for an audience might sound intimidating to some people, but in reality, it is no different than just practicing the piano, violin or any other instrument you play, except that you’ll be bringing joy to others.
Sometimes the elderly simply enjoy being able to see the younger generations, who they may not interact with on a regular basis. Simply visiting them will make them feel special, especially those who don’t have many friends or get very many visitors.
Arrange to play an instrument or sing at a nursing home in your area. Or organize a field trip for your school choir to sing at a nursing home every semester. Learn to sing or play some “oldies” that will bring them back to their youth.
Can’t read music or carry a tune? Volunteer the talents you do have at a local nursing home. Many nursing homes are in need of volunteers for other activities like helping with crafts, bingo or simply just serving dinner.
music gives life to the soul of a man. i think this little act of kindness could also be extended to those behind bars (in prison). music could give them hope for a better tomorrow.
