I found that the type a music that the client enjoys can be of help. I have used it in pacing movement in a client with Parkinson’s. All of a sudden, some movements were possible that before were just labored.
I teach a water aerobics class in which I use classical music which has been composed for movement such as waltzes, polkas and marches. My participants love it, and I find it even inter-generational. Even younger participants sing and swing along even if they had never been exposed to that music.
