We truly believe that music heals.

We partner with the music therapy programs we fund to share their incredible stories of the impact of music therapy for individuals from all walks of life. Through storytelling we aim to increase awareness for the power of music and increase funding to support the sustainability and expansion of music therapy programs to bring this life-changing therapy to everyone who needs it.
