BETH ABRAHAM HEALTH SERVICES CELEBRATES
GRAND OPENING OF RECORDING STUDIO
Multi-Platinum Recording Artist Moby Donates Equipment to
Nursing Home Music Studio

April 27, 2004 (BRONX, NY) – The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF) at Beth Abraham Health Services, a skilled nursing facility and rehabilitation center, announces the grand opening of the Music Has Power™ Club Recording Studio.
With the support of music therapists, this studio provides a medium for creativity and rehabilitation. Using equipment ranging from electronic drums to devices that translate movement to sound, patients have the opportunity to advance their physical, cognitive, and emotional goals through composition, performance and self-expression.

According to renowned music therapist and Director of the Institute, Dr. Concetta Tomaino, “With the addition of the recording studio, we’ve been able to assist patients in many areas, from recovering speech to regaining physical function.” Adding, “through the commitment of people like Moby, we are able to further our mission by expanding our services to include a recording studio dedicated to awaken hidden creative talent, while meeting rehabilitation goals through an innovative approach.”

Well-known pop recording artist Moby joined the Institute board in 2003, after visiting Beth Abraham and observing the work firsthand. Realizing that he could make a difference, he immediately arranged to donate recording equipment that he no longer needed. “I am gratified to see the work of the Institute expanding, and proud to have been able to make a difference,” says Moby. “The work that is being done at Beth Abraham is remarkable.”

As a result of the expansion, more than 40 patients every week are making their own music, recording their own CDs, and restoring function at Beth Abraham. These songwriters include a professional musician who suffered brain damage in a tragic accident, a small elderly woman in a wheel chair (who is great on the tambourine) and a 47-year old stroke victim with no musical training who has become a “star” at Beth Abraham, after recording his first CD.

“The work of the Music Therapy Department at Beth Abraham helps make a vital difference in the health and well being of our patients,” says Michael Fassler, president and CEO of Beth Abraham. “Our music therapists work with these individuals every day using music to enhance speech, mobility, and improve memory.”

Both technologically and clinically Beth Abraham is far more advanced than other healthcare facilities in its use of adaptive musical instruments to treat patients at any level of functioning. Music and technology have been a part of the Music Therapy Program since 1993.

The Music Has Power Club Studio Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place in the auditorium, on Wednesday, April 28, 2004, at 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at 612 Allerton Avenue, Bronx, NY. For additional information or to attend, please call the IMNF at (718) 519-5840.

The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function, a research and training institute is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and an affiliate of the Beth Abraham Family of Health Services, based in New York. For more information on how you can help contact the Institute at 718-519-5840 or visit www.musichaspower.org

Beth Abraham Family of Health Services, est. 1920, is the second largest continuum of long-term health care providers in New York State, offering both inpatient services and community based healthcare programs for the frail, elderly, and chronically ill. Corporate affiliates include: Schnurmacher Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing; CNR Health Care Network; CCM; Best Choice Home Health Care.
