7) TREMBLE CLEF singing groups for those with PARKINSON’S DISEASE

The American Parkinson’s Disease Association sponsors some singing groups for those with PD called “Tremble Clefs.” Groups are found in Laguna Hills, California, San Diego, California, Phoenix, Arizona, Springfield, Missouri and elsewhere. These YouTubes provide testimonials from those who participate in these groups as well as shots of them singing and dancing.

8) YouTubes Sing-A-Long videos

We love Susan McALlister-Bee’s series of sing-a-longs she called ‘Recreation Sing Along for Seniors” There are 17 songs available, each with lyrics printed at the bottom of the screen so you can easily sing along to such favorites as Zip A Dee Doo Dah and Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree With Anyone Else But Me.

Here are links to two of them:
