Alive Inside

This documentary explores how music can provide healing for many people across the world. It “follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the non-profit organization Music & Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it”(Michael Rossato-Bennett,2014). As a mentor, I have noticed that youth having a sense of self is key to their personal growth and development. During our mentor sessions, I have incorporated different forms of music and noticed that it not only provides healing, but also a means of understanding themselves, and connecting with others.
