A Rhythmic Approach to Music Therapy for Parkinson’s Patients (cuanschutz.edu)

I’ve always played musical instruments, but this article has renewed my interest and I shall be starting a regime of practicing scales to the metronome, with a target of increasing speed, or at least not losing any more agility in my fingers.

This is very interesting Lemon as I recently purchased and am teaching myself to play the glockenspiel. it was intended to be just for pleasure and to exercise the old grey cells but if it has a wider therapeutic value that would be an unexpected bonus. Thanks for flagging this up.
