Designers and Facilitators of Together at Song and Play (TAPS)
Together at Play and Song (TAPS) virtual program and in-person program were designed and facilitated by Shalom Park in Denver, CO. They were originally designed by music therapists to be facilitated by music therapists and music therapy interns. The in-person group program was thoughtfully developed for the older adults living in Shalom Park’s assisted living facility and visiting toddlers and their guardians. During COVID-19 lockdowns, the team at Shalom Park quickly adapted. They created TAPS for the same age-groups, but changed the program for pairs to meet virtually with the assistance of facilitators and a music therapist.
The team at Shalom Park worked with LinkAGES to create a program that can be delivered by facilitators who are musically-inclined.
