Music involving senior citizens in music schools, adult education, recreational centers and nursing homes has become an important concern of the specialized program Elementary Music and Dance Pedagogy at the Leipzig Musikhochschule. The author bases her groundbreaking depiction both on extensive theoretical studies as well as on the practical experiences she has made over the past ten years working with the elderly. Next to measures aimed at healing and conserving, it is above all an evolution-oriented aspect that is developed more intensively here: music and motion offer countless possibilities of marshaling and developing the creative potential of a person in the later years of ones life.
