Yesterday almost 2 years later from taking a break from singing for older people I got back in front of the mic. I must say it was a fulfilling experience for the most part. The best part for me was seeing the music bring them back to life with each song that was played. That is the part that I loved the best. I loved to see their shiny smiley faces come alive with the memory and us all be transported to a different place with the lyrics and the tunes & rhythms.
My time spent in the session was very eye opening and seeing the full session and how it works was inspiring as to how I might best work up to that. For now I am happy to go along and sing a few songs and be a part of it and learn by participation. All in time.
Eventually it would be nice to master the skill for a full session and able to provide that full service to those who need it.
