It’s no secret that music can help you feel better.
That’s why Musicians On Call brings music to the people who need it most – hospital patients.
Musicians On Call brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. By delivering live, in-room performances to patients undergoing treatment or unable to leave their beds, we add a dose of joy to life in a healthcare facility. Since 1999, Musicians On Call volunteer musicians have performed for nearly 600,000 patients and their families.
Music is Medicine believes that music is a tool that can better the lives of those in need, especially children. Therefore, we pair artists with critically ill children so the artists can produce original songs for them. In the process, the artists and patients receive uplifting, life-changing experiences.
