The Green Book CD Collection
10 CDs of backing music for every song in the Green Large Print Song Book by Aged Care Music Resources.
Since its release in October 2017, The Green Book CD Collection has become recognised as a premium activities resource which caters specifically for the needs of the Baby Boomer generation. This was identified as a need by those working in the industry, as this cohort are now entering both residential aged care and community-based activity groups, in increasing numbers.
The value of music as a trigger for happy memories and the promotion of feelings of wellbeing, has long been accepted. It is not surprising therefore, to find that research reveals singing also carries with it a range of benefits which include emotional, psychological, social, behavioural and physiological.
While the Baby Boomer generation did not grow up immersed in the culture of community and family singalongs, which were core to earlier generations, they are increasingly seeking the bonding and social interaction which group singing forges.
With its companion Green Large Print Song Book, the Green Book CD collection provides the basis for hours of pleasurable listening and singing with its compilation of 200 popular tunes from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.
Community singing groups, Senior Citizens Centres and aged care facilities alike, will appreciate the value of this CD collection, in providing a simple way to teach songs, facilitate sing-alongs on bus trips, provide music for movement, or background music to happy hour drinks or parties – the list is limited only by your imagination.
