A Comparative Analysis of the Effects of Music Therapy in the Geriatric Population in Group Sessions versus Individual Sessions

This thesis discusses the different benefits of individual musical therapy sessions vs group musical therapy sessions in the geriatric generation.

Group sessions consisted of a hello song, an activity used to increase cognitive stimulation, and a movement paired with music. Individual sessions also began with a hello song and involved singing subject preferred music, reminiscing following music, as well as instrument playing when appropriate.

The purpose of the observation was to quantify the level of participation and interaction of the subject between the group and individual music therapy sessions.
