Name that Tune ♫ ♪

Activities for Seniors | By Debbie Davison
Music can have a profound effect on the elderly and those living with memory loss. I encourage all aged care workers to incorporate some music activities into their calendar.
Name that Tune is a simple and great music activity to do, it is always fun for everyone to guess the song and to sing-along in the activity.

How to play: Name that Tune

✿ Compile a list of old songs from the golden era - 50's, 60's, 70's etc
✿ Using a Laptop for playback is most convenient.
✿ Connect to a Bluetooth speaker or stereo system so its loud enough for everyone in the room can hear. 

✿ Let the song play along and see if anyone can guess. 
✿ Pause the song just before the chorus and see if anyone has an answer.
(Some songs don’t reveal their name till it gets to the chorus.)
✿ Once someone has guessed the song you can start the song again and encourage everyone to join in and sing.
✿ You can also add to the game by getting residents to also guess who is the artist who sang the tune.
Happy singing!
