Listening to music or singing songs may provide emotional and behavioral benefits for people with dementia. In this one-year study, researchers will evaluate the effects of home-based music therapy for people with mild cognitive impairment or Alzheimer's disease. If assigned to the treatment group, participants and their study partner will be asked to sing songs at home for at least one hour each day. In addition, some participants will meet with a music therapist several times over a six-month period. Every three months, the researchers will gather information from participants to track changes on cognitive function and quality of life. Screening and participation in this study can be completed in-person or remotely from home.
