If you already play, join our experienced band and have fun making music! Music can improve your health - A recent study found that older adults who participate in arts programs have better overall health, boosted immune systems and even fewer medical appointments.  Playing an instrument is great for maintining finger movement, helping to keep arthritic hand limber and improving respiratory functioning.  With all these benefits, who cannot afford not to play music?
