    I am 56 and have been deeply affected by recreational music throughout my life. Over the past year, I developed a new percussion instrument and activity program specifically for the elderly. Called “tap dancing rhythm for your hands,” it was birthed out of a very painful time of my life. I share it with people in nursing homes and with the disabled. You can find out more about it at dancinghandstaps.com.
