The Everett Herald featured an article on the “Acoustic Armor” program. Part of the Snohomish County Music Project, this program works with veterans and mature adults. The group meets twice weekly in a “jam band” format, accompanied by individual music therapy sessions. Led by music therapy director Karla Hawley, the group will be performing Friday, November 20 at an Artist Reception from 6 PM – 8 PM. RSVP via Facebook. The event is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted.
If a veteran or mature adult you know has a connection with music, see if the Music Project can help by emailing [email protected].
The jam band, which practices two days a week, is part of the Snohomish County Music Project’s music therapy program for veterans and other adults older than 55. Grewing, along with Adam Buchanan, 57, of Edmonds and Mukilteo’s Scott Alexander, 58, were practicing Tuesday for their first public performance. Buchanan plays guitar, while Alexander is a drummer who was keeping the beat on an electronic drum kit. Unlike Grewing, they aren’t veterans, but said they have anxiety and stress issues.
