Steve and list, There's a large literature on music therapy, including that directed specifically to dementia. A recent and updated meta-analysis will be published in Clinical Nursing soon, which contains a lot of references that should put you into the picture: Vasionyte, I. & Madison, G. (in press). Musical intervention for patients with dementia: A meta-analysis. Journal of Clinical Nursing. Other central references (comprehensive reviews and meta-analyses) are: Koger, S. M. & Brotons, M. (2000). Music therapy for dementia symptoms. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (Online), 2, CD001121. Koger, S. M., Chapin, K., & Brotons, M. (1999). Is music therapy an effective intervention for dementia? A meta-analytic review of literature. Journal of Music Therapy, 36, 2-15. Sherratt, K., Thornton, A., & Hatton, C. (2004). Music interventions for people with dementia: a review of the literature. Aging & Mental Health, 8, 3-12. Sung, H. C. & Chang, A. M. (2005). Use of preferred music to decrease agitated behaviours in older people with dementia: a review of the literature. Journal of Clinical Nursing, 14, 1133-1140.
