She has spent summers listening to music at Tanglewood in the Berkshires and winters at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. She loves Broadway show tunes, Jewish music, and nursery rhymes. After each of her six grandchildren was born, she sang all her favorite children’s songs to them, from Little Red Caboose to Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star, and more.
Several years ago, Carole was diagnosed with dementia. Around the same time, I started playing guitar. Over these past few years, we have spent many afternoons together singing Jewish songs and familiar Hebrew prayers and songs from services and holidays, as I practiced guitar. And through that, we have developed this program together.
