What Can You Win?
The prize is a wonderful DVD set called “Toe-Tapping Songs” created by Darlene Hamby, a music specialist in the eldercare field. The set centers around a collection of 20 songs to sing along to. They are all “feel good” tunes, and caregivers, seniors (or Golden Oldies as I like to call them) and their families will enjoy them. It consists of a DVD of a music session, with Darlene playing the piano and singing with senior citizens, and also includes six sing-along song books. Inside the song books, you will find one page dedicated to each song containing the lyrics in LARGE PRINT and a photo to match the song’s theme. It is packaged in a compact binder which is both easy to store and easy to travel with.
Darlene’s love of both music and Golden Oldies shines through as she sings and plays the piano on this DVD. I’ve had the pleasure of participating in one of her live music sessions and I’m sure people of all ages will enjoy having their own sing-alongs with Darlene via this DVD. This set can be used to create fun music sessions during family gatherings or in an assisted living facility’s activity program. It will be a big hit over and over again in either setting!
