The music triggers different parts of the brain with the potential of helping people express feelings and recall memories through vocal warms ups and a variety of songs.

The group meets on the second Wednesday of every month between 2pm to 4pm at the Museum of London Docklands in West India Quay.

Irene, a Singing for the Brain member with dementia, she said: "I love Singing for the Brain which I call singing for the soul. The group lets me meet other people with dementia, which makes me feel that I am not so different after all."
