Henry Dryer never interacted with anyone. His mouth barely uttered a word. He lost his memory because of dementia. But when music filled Dryer’s ears, his mouth sounded the words in the song. He began recollecting memories from his past, all the way back to his school days.
His doctor, who had never seen this side of him, was mesmerized at the sudden change in his patient’s mood. Dryer, normally silent and withdrawn, suddenly seemed full of life and able to speak about the past, sing, and express emotions, all from listening to a little music.
