As a singer/ guitarist/ pianist, Aidan does Music Programs at retirement homes, nursing homes, long term care facilities and Senior Centres.
His wide range of programs include One to One or small group Music Programs, Music Memories Class and Live Sing A Long Concerts and VIRTUAL SHOWS.
Senior Program Formats:

Virtual Shows: During the pandemic, Aidan is offering virtual shows. These shows can be projected onto a large TV at the facility for small groups, or can be a "wandering iPad" program where a staff member walks room to room with me on the tablet. Both styles of shows are interactive. 

One to One/ Small Group Music Programs for Seniors: As part of the Wandering Minstrel program, Aidan brings percussion instruments for the residents to learn. As part of this musical interaction, the seniors will enjoy playing along with different rhythms, time signatures and much more!

Music Memories: A program developed to help seniors with Alzheimer's and memory issues connect music with past memories by applying singing, learning & playing percussion instruments and sharing memorable life events. By actually playing the instruments along with me, the residents with Alzheimer's and Dementia often have wonderful breakthroughs in their ability to learn and play music. 
Concert Setting with PA: Ideal for 50 or more people in auditorium or outdoors.
