Music & Memory (M&M)

President: Rhea Vikas

Music & Memory at Baylor University is an organization dedicated to bringing personalized music into the lives of memory care patients. Music therapy can improve the quality of life for patients with memory-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our organization focuses on therapeutic music approaches for helping patients with neurological disease and making a positive impact on patient health. This organization integrates music and medicine in a unique way to raise awareness for the utilization of holistic medicine.

A big part of this organization is educating through service. Music & Memory provides service through patient interaction with residents at Living Springs Village (LSV) Memory Care facility in Waco. We require all Music & Memory members to participate in events at LSV, such as therapeutic music listening and performance. This requirement has taught our members the value of familiar music for our memory care residents' neurological health. We also hold a speaker series with experts in the field of Alzheimer's and dementia to educate members further on the subject. In addition, Music & Memory plays a big part in raising awareness for neurological memory diseases in the Waco area by participating in the annual national Walk to End Alzheimer’s charity event.

Regardless of if you are a musician or not, if you have a love for music and transformational patient care, this organization is for you! If you are interested in joining please email
