Short-Term Stay Rental Retirement Community
A monthly class titled “Music and Movement” will take place at a new time and day. The next session is at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 11 at The Timbers of Shorewood retirement community, 1100 N. River Road. The public is invited to this free class.
Part of the Timbers’ Quality of Life series, the class will now meet at 9:30 a.m. on the first Wednesday of each month.
Taught by musician Stacy Jager, the class features gentle movement accompanied by music. Jager is a music therapist whose primary musical instrument is the piano. However, she also plays guitar and utilizes a variety of musical instruments in her classes.
As a pianist, Jager focuses on an easy listening style of music. She also plays her own compositions.
“We’ll do hand motions to songs such as ‘He’s got the Whole World in His Hands’ and ‘My Bonnie Lies over the Ocean’,” Jager said. “Sometimes class members will use scarves or maracas along with movement.”
“Music and Movement” will take place on the second Thursday of each month. The public is warmly welcome to join the free class.
