Arizona Jazz Vocalist Offers Virtual Music, Movement & Memory Program Professional touring vocal jazz musician Shannon Wallace has created a virtual and interactive live streaming and on-demand Music, Movement & Memory workshop program aimed at serving those of all ages living with all stages of dementia and cognitive impairment, along with their care partners. A Certified Dementia Practitioner through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners, Wallace says she is an advocate for human’s adventurous and creative spirit through interactive expression and communication. She began the virtual program in response to the global COVID-19 virus’ impact on the community she serves “We are living in unprecedented times,” says Wallace. “And just as in my inperson workshops, my virtual program also seeks to stimulate and engage each participant in a shared sense of community and teamwork, evoking endless possibilities of emotional, mental and verbal responses, no matter the physical or mental ability or limitation. Each live and pre-recorded video features Wallace interacting with her virtual audience who then experiences full-body movement exercises; memory and hand-eye coordination games; problem-solving games (i.e., mathematics, geography and history); humor and interactive, reflective conversation, all set to music and/or rhythm. The live streaming user experience also includes an interactive chat component; while the growing library of pre-recorded videos also cover topics, ideas and concepts relevant to health, family, life, mindfulness and overall well-being. “While we all stay-at-home, I want to make sure that I can still be of service to all those who have to tightly remain within the comfort and safety of their current and familiar environments,” adds Wallace.
