Re: Music, how important is music?
It's beyond important. It's soul nutrition....
As my Dad (who was a drummer) lied dying in a nursing home, I would bring in an old cassette player with some of his favorite music (predominately Louis Armstrong), placed it near his head as he could barely open his eyes and played him hours worth of music over the course of several months.
He would, in his own way, get a smile each and every time I turned the player on.
