WHY? To engage suburban and regional interest in community music and purposely shift the paradigm from being communities which spectate and "buy in" entertainment to being communities which actively participate in, and are prepared to invest in and create their own music to maintain brain fitness.
Cornerstone ... Community Music
The Music and The Brain Foundation promotes and supports Community Music. The Foundation works to help stem the onset of dementia by encouraging people to sing/learn an instrument (pick up instruments previously learnt), towards becoming "brain fit" as a preventative to acquiring age related brain disorders.
