Music Heals Strike a Chord Logo

The Music Therapy Ride (MTR) brings together prominent members of Vancouver’s business community, music industry, music therapists and motorcycle enthusiasts —all sharing the love of music and providing music therapy to those most in need.

Music Heals presents the Music Therapy Ride in partnership with Bikers for Autism on August 25th, 2018.

MTR founders Patrick Zulinov, Chris Dunner and Shaw Saltzberg have passed the torch to the Music Heals Charitable Foundation to continue the legacy in 2018.

We anticipate 300 motorcyclists riding up the majestic Sea to Sky raising funds and awareness of the healing powers of music with a special focus on programs for patients on the autism spectrum.

A Night Out For Music Heals

On the first Saturday of March, we celebrate Music Therapy Awareness Month with A Night Out for Music Heals.

This annual event brings together the Nightlife and Bar industry to raise funds and awareness for music therapy programs across Canada. In 2017 we raised over $19,900, with 90 venues participating coast to coast!

Help us celebrate the 6th annual A Night Out for Music Heals on March 3, 2018. Visit a participating venue near you, and follow us on social for updates, using #NightOut4MH.
