L&L for Older Adults


Introducing L&L for Older Adults: a collection of original and adapted goal-based songs for use in music therapy sessions, groups, and recreational programs.

The Listen & Learn Music collection began as a resource for those who help children learn and grow through music. However, it didn’t take long for us (and our customers) to realize that many of the songs in this collection work wonderfully with older adults, as well.

The unique lyrics, melodies, and goal areas targeted in a variety of L&L tunes make them perfectly appropriate for a wide range of populations. In this resource, we have carefully selected material that encourages socialization, movement, reminiscence, and other important domains for your older adult participants.

With 42 songs ranging from original compositions, to adapted classics, to holiday tunes, you’ll be sure to find something the older adults in your groups and sessions will benefit from and enjoy.


Older adult sessions often revolve around familiar songs that they grew up listening to, an approach which has amazing benefits. That is exactly why many of the songs in this resource are adapted from these well-known tunes in order to better target specific goals.

It’s also nice to switch things up a bit with a new song! The Listen & Learn originals included in this resource utilize engaging melodies, entertaining accompaniment, and interesting topics in order to further encourage older adults to reach their goals.

Adding these songs from the Listen & Learn Music collection to your older adult sessions is made easy with this resource. Included are the song recordings, instrumental tracks, lead sheets, and facilitation guides.

Facilitation guides were created to help you implement these songs into your sessions right away. They include goal areas targeted, instruments or other equipment needed/suggested, step-by-step instructions, and adaptations for each song. Stick to the script, or tailor your approach to better suit your participants.

Additionally, you’ll find a spreadsheet containing the domain areas, instruments/ equipment needed, and quick links to all the files listed above for each song.

Once you purchase, you’ll receive instant access to this digital resource via email. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me, rachel@listenlearnmusic.com. Looking forward to sharing this song collection with you!
