About Music from the Heart
"Music from the Heart" was co-founded by David Claude Rogers and Jacqueline Bess Weaver, a specialist in dementia care. The company specializes in developing and implementing "Music Stimulation Programs" for the elderly that incorporate therapeutic products, ideas and techniques for the benefit of persons diagnosed with dementia and other forms of physical and cognitive decline.
A significant component of the "Music Stimulation Programs" is the sound of the Native American flute and the therapeutic quality of its music. Therefore, I created the website "flutemusicfromtheheart.com" to make available the original music I composed for the instrument that when heard or played will calm your spirit and give you peace.
