Life Rhythms, based in Highland Park, is focused on helping those in assisted living homes, memory loss facilities and private residences participate in making and sharing music on an individual and group level seven days a week. The one-hour sessions, inclusive of all instruments, improve hand-eye coordination, stimulate cognitive abilities and promote wellness.

Life Rhythms serves as a creative and enriching outlet, enhancing seniors’ self-expression and overall well-being,” says founder Noah Plotkin, a renowned Chicago-area percussionist. “Our program facilitates connection between families and their loved ones through the awesome power of music.”

Plotkin goes on to explain that playing together enables families to bond with one another, transcending the need for verbal communication. “Witnessing their loved ones succeed in individual and group music activities brings immense joy to families,” he adds.

Classes and pricing are customized to the individual or group setting and can be scheduled from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
